Michael Barone : Obama and Kagan Whisper in the Faculty Lounge - Townhall.com
Obama graduated from Harvard Law School in 1991; Kagan in 1986. Kagan joined the faculty at the University of Chicago Law School in 1991 and became a full professor there in 1995. Obama taught constitutional law there, though he was not formally a professor, from 1992 to 2004. |
They have other things in common. Unusually for top law students who go on to teach law, they have published little: Kagan has written just five law review articles; Obama none.
Those who can't do - teach - is that the saying?
Can you imagine a surgeon of a large teaching hospital having performed none or maybe 5 surgeries, picked to be chief? Would you want this individual performing your surgery?
Hey POTUS, I watch Judge Joe Brown, slept at a Holiday Inn, and unlike your nominees will state where I stand on the issues,.... Why am I not a better qualified candidate than Kagan? Oh, I have no law degree, just a doctoral degree, I figure I could learn on the job ---- just like you are doing.
