    in this point one way or the other.  I'm just dreading all of the second guessing of whatever legislation passes to resolve the fiscal mini-cliff on the basis that Obama's a semi-secret conservative for not going with the coin, like what we've seen since 2011 when he didn't invoke the 14th amdnemtn (something Tribe rejected in an NYT op-ed which was, among other things, longer than the e-mail linked above).  As long as there are plausible legal arguments against seeing the coin as a viable option, and i've raised a few as have others, that argument should be invalid.  I don't think Tribe goes so far as to say his is the only conceivable interpretation, just what he sees as the better one.  

    Difficult, difficult, lemon difficult.
