OK, I love Clint Eastwood as an actor, and while his speech last night as the RNC was a bit strange (I suspect that “having a conversation with an empty chair” will be the meme of the year) I found it humorous and endearing.
It struck me, however, that Clint called for a “businessman” in the White House rather than a lawyer – due to the fact that lawyers are “so busy.”
Two issues with this: First, Romney, like Obama, possesses a law degree. And neither man has spent any meaningful portion of their career practicing law. And second, as any recent law school graduate can tell you, many attorneys are far, far from busy.
