"She didn't have a stated judicial philosophy so she was unacceptable to the right wing of the Republican Party," Eads said. "A judge shouldn't have a driven judicial philosophy. The world is a complicated place. We need judges who can think through problems and not have answers before they even reach the bench."
I had Eads as my Evidence prof. She knew the material but was a ball-busting feminist. Then again, most law school profs are liberals, leftists, and worse. The Republicans are usually adjunct profs who work full-time at a firm and teach a single course each semester.
I've seen Olson, Sutton and others argue cases before the Supreme Court. It is literally awesome to witness such intelligent men. Ann Coulter is also a fantastically smart lawyer. (I saw her at a conference for Congressional staffers in the Longworth HOB.) (I guess I'm a political nerd when I crash conferences for congressional staffers, eh?) I could picture her on the bench, if she didn't have such a mouth on her. (But I'm glad she does.)
