I suppose that it would be pretty neat if a former professor of mine became the next vice president of the United States. But I really don’t get what is going on here. If Douglas Kmiec really thinks that Hillary Clinton is going to ask him to join her on the ticket, then there is something seriously askew when it comes to his ratiocination process. Then again, this is the same guy who, during the Clinton impeachment controversy, told his students–including me–that we shouldn’t impeach President Clinton; we should just make him serve a jail sentence but have him remain as president as the same time. I suppose that trips to Moscow to confer with Boris Yeltsin about matters of international significance would have counted as part of Clinton’s work release program.
