I'll repeat a question I posted at Volokh. Is there any evidence from the International Man of Mystery's tenure as President that he trained as a lawyer?

Obama's positions are generally supported by a variety of lawyers. But they are not usually consistent with what he said on the campaign trail. So he is acting like a very inconsistent politician.

"Obama's positions are generally supported by a variety of lawyers." Fair enough; but for all I know the same might have been true of W who certainly didn't train as a lawyer. Is there anything that O has done , or said, or left undone, that cries "lawyer"?

I don't think so.

Obama is impressively trained in the rhetoric of the Marxist dialectic--which might pass for lawyerly--and he is a scholar of the Living Constitution. The evidence of his work at Harvard Law is buried with the SAT and LSAT under Grants Tomb along with the evidence of his attendance at Columbia, and his hash pipe.

Did you Britisher blokes forget to write down your Constitution or did you just figure it wouldn't make any difference?
