Dayton v. Kennedy

Returning Senator Mark Dayton to the Ranks of the Idle Rich in 2006

Would Dayton Oppose Thomas for CJ?

Jonathan Turley, law professor at GWU, posits in this morning's Los Angeles Times (registration required) that Clarence Thomas remains the front runner for Chief Justice when Mr. Rhenquist steps aside.

The entire piece is worth reading as it has less to do with the merits (or demerits from Turley's standpoint) of Thomas' opinions and more to do with Thomas' considerable political skills. For those watching the impending Dayton-Kennedy race it raises this question: would Dayton have the political cojanes to oppose the first African-American CJOTUS?
