Olson: It's the Ivy League, Stupid!



Walter Olson notes how the things that surprise the broader public about judicial nominees like Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor generate little stir indeed inside the hallowed halls of the nation's elite law schools.

(My own view of Kagan's handling of the military recruitment issue has been rather nonplussed, given that her position was in lock step with all the other elite law school deans. But as Walter suggests, such rationales are probably far from self-evident to the unwashed masses of the American electorate -- and the issue may indeed be mildly explosive in Kagan's looming confirmation.)
