The Rule of Law (Professors)
I admit that I keep a relatively limited list of RSS feeds because I try to have a life. But a quick scan this morning seems to indicate that I am the first person to note the following insight: it is possible that within the next couple of years two of the most powerful leaders in the world could be [cough, gasp, ahem, cough, cough] former law professors. We know about Barack Obama’s tenure at the University of Chicago, but it has now been revealed that Dmitri Medvedev, Vladimir Putin’s hand-picked successor, is also a former law professor.
I am trying to imagine a world governed by law professors. Comments are welcome, but my first thought is that anyone with more than five or six years experience in the real world will be considered disqualified for cabinet positions.
