POTUS, Esq. (Redux)

Last year I briefly blogged on the fact that several of the presidential hopefuls in both parties were lawyers with some fairly divergent practice backgrounds. As we wind up for the Iowa hootenanny tomorrow, Michael Dorf over at FindLaw takes another look at how the legal candidates are spinning their experience. I don't think we necessarily need a lawyer in the White House, but if we are going to wind up with one, I'd prefer it was somebody with some practical on-the-ground litigation experience. Some connection to the real world would be nice.
