    I think the diary says that the "two best plausible candidates... happen to be lesbian," and that turns out to lead to two additional arguments in their favor.

    •  Sigh. Thanks for reading the actual diary (1+ / 0-)

        Please read the comment string before you judge. I did read the diary. I was commenting on how a lot of lawyers process decision-making.

          think this way about law and winning cases, you are mistaken.

          Obama's a pragmatist, right?  Pragmatism counsels that he widen the Kennedy-Scalia schism.  My argument is that this might do the trick.

            I agree with you on Obama, but a pragmatist would most likely think about what's realistic in this political climate.
