RE: Fred’s Legal Perspective

Jennifer, perhaps it’s the lawyer in you that finds tort reform a crucial issue, but I don’t see it having much of an impact on conservative voters. Perhaps it will upset Wall Street, and perhaps he can count on fewer contributions from insurance executives than he otherwise would have, but it won’t make a difference for Thompson at the grassroots level. And affirmative action is simply not the issue now that it was ten years ago. To the extent that the conservative base cares about legal issues, it will be more important to them that Thompson has an excellent record on judges, that he escorted John Roberts around during his confirmation hearings, that he has said Roe v. Wade is bad law, etc. When most normal people hear the words “tort reform,” they’re ready to take a nap.
