Number of Lawyer-Politicians on the Rise

What do you think about this article? Rate it using the stars above and let us know what you think in the comments below.
And there have been plenty of legal angles to discuss. First, the Democratic ticket has two lawyers on it. Of course, Barack Obama is running (in part) on his Harvard law degree and past heading of the Harvard Law Review. Joe Biden and his family are lawyers as well, with connections to asbestos litigation.

On the other hand, Senator McCain and Governor Palin are not lawyers. Neither has a JD. So the election from a legal point of view is interesting: two attorneys versus two non-attorneys.


But there are plenty of legal stories on the Republican side as well. The primary one involves Senator McCain's selection committee, which was headed up by O'Melveny & Myers chairman Arthur Culvahouse. There was a lot of controversy about his role and whether he'd done a good job. Besides running McCain's search team, Culvahouse just won reelection to his chairmanship at O'Melveny.

But the pundits did their thing: nattering on, some of them being (quite) negative, and some being positive.

And the best advice of all? If you're a lawyer and interested in politics, now is the time to jump into the fray — it helps your networking opportunities!
