E Pluribus Unum


Money mightily influences elections but donating money to a candidate is not the only way to support him, or her. So one may still hope that, even though all of the faculty donations to presidential candidates at Harvard, Michigan, Stanford — and at “conservative” Chicago — law schools went to Democrats, there might be a McCain voter or two among them. Paul Caron’s report (relayed to us today by Ed Whelan) is nonetheless potent evidence indeed of the pathetic state of “diversity” among faculty at elite law schools. There may be fewer evangelical Christians and practicing Roman Catholics on these faculties than there are McCain voters, even though evangelicals and Catholics together constitute a majority of the American population — as do, happily, McCain voters.
