Curious and Curiouser. While stumbling upon some information in a bio found on wikipedia on Ms. Cheney, it appears that she graduated from University of Chicago, Law School receiving her J.D. The year in which she received it was 1996.
She received her Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree from the University of Chicago Law School in 1996, having also taken courses in Middle Eastern history at the Oriental Institute.
Interestingly enough, President Obama was teaching at the school from 1992-2004 and Constitutional Law, the course President Obama taught, is a REQUIRED course.
There is probably nothing to this, but I would be really curious for an answer to this question. Did Obama teach Liz Cheney at school? I mean they were at the same school at the same time, when he was a lecturer being promoted to a Senior lecturer. If he did, did she simply not understand what the Constitution said in regards to due process? (After all the Military Commissions Act of 2006 was overturned) Did she not learn how to interpret a statute? (Otherwise she would know what torture is)
For twelve years, Obama served as a professor of constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School; as a Lecturer from 1992 to 1996, and as a Senior Lecturer from 1996 to 2004. In 1993 he joined Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland, a twelve-attorney law firm specializing in civil rights litigation and neighborhood economic development, where he was an associate for three years from 1993 to 1996, then of counsel from 1996 to 2004, with his law license becoming inactive in 2002.
Of course, the likelihood that he had taught her is remote. Currently in law school, I can attest that many professors teach the same topic as a way to bring down class sizes. Still, the fun thought still goes over my mind as to whether he did or not. Personally, I hope he did and boy would that make some interesting perspective on the T.V.
P.S. I 'm sorry for the short diary, I'm just curious as to what people think of this. Do people think it's: (a) likely? and (b) interesting?
