Studying for the LSAT / ITT we debate the merits of "elitism"
« on: October 21, 2008, 02:15:32 PM »
Also, can you believe that "elite" is a good thing without being an elitist?

Is there a difference between elitism and straight-up prestige whoring for no good reason?


Should we limit the "elite" category to just Wachtell?  Throw in Cravath and Williams & Connolly?  How about Munger, Irell, Keker and Bartlit Beck?  Or is this a ridiculously narrow definition of "elite" firm?

What do YOU think?

General Off-Topic Board / What have you cut back on due to the economy?

I haven't eaten today.  I probably won't for a while.  Also, I recharge all my electronics at school, where electricity is free.

Anybody else?

Anyone else think this is slightly insane?

General Off-Topic Board / A poll for the conservatives

I predict this will probably get about 5 votes, total. 

This board needs more people.

I'm kind of curious as to who would become the de facto head of the party at that point.  I imagine the party wouldn't want W.  McCain and Palin probably not since they would be the losing ticket (and Palin has no national position).  Boehner and McConnell seem too low-profile.  So does the Republican Party spend some time being effectively leaderless?  What's the deal here?

Also if you want to respond to the hypothetical by saying the hypothetical will not happen, well that's fine and all but that's not what we're here to debate.
