    New York Magazine ^ | March 18, 2012 | Jason Zengerle
    Clement’s career is cresting just as the momentous legal crusades of a radicalized Republican Party are reaching the appellate level. His ability to strip the politics out of a contentious argument, the goodwill he engenders from Democrats, and his chumminess with the justices�these are all qualities that would appear to be anachronistic in contemporary, hyperpartisan Washington. But the case of Paul Clement suggests that, at least in one corner of the capital, they are very much in demand. Clement disputes this political interpretation. �Look, I get it, I hang out in this town, I understand how people are looking at...

    Paul Clement has been receiving rave reviews for his performance during the second day of oral arguments over health-care reform before the Supreme Court. ([T]he best argument Ive ever heard, SCOTUSblog Tom Goldstein raved on Twitter). But Clements finest moment may have come when he was completely silent. A little more than two minutes into Solicitor General Donald Verillis turn at the bar, Justice Anthony Kennedy interrupted him: Can you create commerce in order to regulate it? Kennedys query was an almost verbatim recital of Clements own talking point, part of the fundamental argument he has made against the individual...

    June 15, 2009 ( - This article presents the Christian attitude toward abortion before the first ecumenical council, that is, until A.D. 325.Because the New Testament does not comment on the morality of abortion, this article considers the writings of the first generations of Christians after the apostles, for they indicate that opposition to abortion (1) was shared at a time when the writers or Christians not many generations earlier personally knew the apostles or their first disciples and thus benefited from their unwritten teachings and interpretations of Scripture, (2) comes from a date so early that...

    CIA, W.

This information, as well as the pressure that West Germany applied on the Central Intelligence Agency in order to prevent the leak of this sensitive information, is detailed in hundreds of newly declassified documents released by the U.S. government yesterday.

    The White House decided to employ a politically-palatable, pundit-prescribed exit strategy with the withdrawal of Harriet Miers. Because of that, Miss Miers is no longer a nominee to the United States Supreme Court, and much of America may believe the Bush Administration's contention that she withdrew over a request for documents. In actuality, she withdrew because her 1993 pro-abortion speech came to light, and that was the straw that broke the camel's back for the great Dr. James Dobson, Senator Sam Brownback, Senator John Thune, and any members of the conservative base who had reserved judgment up to that point....

    WASHINGTON -- Mentioning the little-known Judge Edith Brown Clement as front-runner for the Supreme Court vacancy was not a ploy to obscure the eventual selection of Judge John Roberts. She was the real runner-up, after evoking mixed reviews from conservatives. President Bush was very much impressed with Clement during his interview with her, and sources say he gave her a White House tour. However, anti-abortion activists were not happy, contending that she has no record on their issue. Clement's supporters say she is very well thought of by conservative Justice Antonin Scalia and that she would follow his lead on...

Unfortunately, I know very little about the other candidates on the list. When I have time, I'll Google around for any scraps of information, but in the meantime all honest and constructive comments are welcome. My Number One criterion in the new pick is that he should have to give due respect to the 4th amendment and other limitations on the arbitrary power of government.
