John, we just made sure to cover all the angles.

But if this is the ceiling for campaign finance regulation in the new Roberts Court, I would sure like to find the floor. Among those voting to overturn the Vermont law, there is an acceptance of the general principle that campaign expenditures are a form of free speech. You don’t hear any of the nonsense about battling the corrupting influence of money.

I will also remain optimistic because of Alito’s opinion — the respondents were playing on the wrong field to overturn anything: McCain-Feingold or Buckley. I’ll wait until a case takes on the campaign finance “legal universe” and see what happens.
