But There Is A Silver Lining

I don't mean to bump Dan's post below, but I'd be remiss if I didn't continue to point to the silver lining of a) having a Boalt degree and b) having a Democrat in the White House.   Earlier today, President Obama nominated Miranda Du, a Boaltie from Nevada, to the federal bench.  I hear very, very good things about Ms. Du from those in the know; and considering Harry Reid probably pushed for the nomination, I think she'll have a smooth confirmation.  And she's not the only Boaltie with a Nevada connection to be nominated as an Article III judge.  Last week, the President nominated Judge Wallach of International Trade Court to the Federal Circuit.  So by my count at least, in the past two weeks, the President has nominated three Boalties to the federal bench, on top of Professor Liu's appointment to the Supreme Court of California.  Three cheers for them all.

I don't care at all about this.

Ditto. I'm not sure how this is supposed to make ordinary people feel better.

Yeah, if I had written either post it would have been titled, "Here is How Barack Obama Fucked You Today."

I should start doing that each week.

I think the point, DannyZ, is that we are not ordinary people, for we attend Boalt Hall. HIP HIP (waits for response)

Actually the point was mostly to make a pun about Nevada being the Silver State. But that one works too.

Ah, I missed that. I can appreciate a decent pun.

I'm sorry, but WTF? We DEFINITELY need another management-side employment lawyer on the bench. Should have known when Armen said he had "heard good things."

And the above comment serves as a timely reminder that there are negatives associated with a Boalt degree as well. Childish, one-dimensional, knee-jerk, ultra liberal commentary being number 1 on that list. Followed in distant second by rising fees.
