Well, since it was in 2008 when the judgement was made and Scalia was the one who wrote the opinion about it, I would tend to follow the constitution and say that the highest judicial body in the land does get the final say on what is and is not constitutional.

Also, if you want to say that it is a political body, it would currently be a right leaning political body due to the views of who is sitting on it, and it certainly was leaning conservative when this decision was issued in 2008.
