Joint-stock corporations have enmouors funds at their disposal dwarfing those of all but the richest of the rich. And there is the (unsolvable?) problem of agency, of the CEO acting in his own and his boards interests instead of the shareholders'. I can't see how this ruling will not lead to the worst kind of corporatocracy, to coin a word. To say nothing of the fact that corporations have no sense of allegiance to one country more than another. They are not "good citizens" except in a public relations sense. I think Ann owes her readers her thoughts on this important legal issue. I want to hear them. Educate me!

A little slpopy, but alright. In part of his argument he mentioned a lot of could haves. They could have pulled the money from their PAC funds instead of taking it from the General funds, for example. And if they had done that then this whole business could have been avoided. I have two issues with this: 1) What if funds from for profits or unions was their only source and 2) couldn't one make the same argument about sitting in the front of the bus or the back. Plenty of seats in the back could have mitigated all the fuss caused by sitting in the front.Of course, many times cases that reach courts like this were purposefully done to test the laws, right? So even bringing up the could haves sounds a bit off.

Sloan,The problem with that threoy is that it isn't reflected in what's actually happened. If it were true that Kennedy and Souter drifted left having moved to D.C., I might agree with you, but there's nothing to indicate they did, and JCG's book makes clear that there were several people in the Justice Department who knew exactly what kind of justice Tony Kennedy would make, which is why they did everything possible to prevent his nomination. And in Souter's case, even if he arguably moved left (which is itself a highly dubious point), Souter notoriously DOESN'T AND DIDN'T engage with the DC social circuit. Harry Blacmun moved left because he was never all that conservative in the first place and was driven left when he was defrocked by the right after Roe. What other examples have you?
