IN LARRY TRIBE'S BACK POCKET?: It's hardly likely, but by some inexplicable chance, Laurence Tribe and Cass Sunstein, two of the most unmitigated liberals teaching Con Law these days, have recommended that the Judiciary Committee approve the nomination of Michael W. McConnell, a Utah (formerly U. of Chicago) law school professor, and perhaps the best legal mind practicing on behalf of the Right in a long, long time. Maybe it's because they know McConnell will be less of a threat to their agenda for liberalizing the law on the bench than he is at the bar. Deserving most of the credit for the thinking behind the Supreme Court's recent pro-religion decisions (including school vouchers), McConnell is more than well-deserving of his nomination, and hopefully, future appointment, to the 10th Circuit Ct. of Appeals.
