SCOTUS: A Clinton Ed Staffer On The High Court?

image from seattletimes.nwsource.com Former Clinton-era USDE staffer Goodwin Liu is being groomed for the Supreme Court, according to this Miami Herald article, and conservatives are lining up to delay and oppose his possible nomination, according to The Hill.  None of this matters to me.  I'm only interested because he's a pro-charter education guy of sorts (I think he worked on National Service), and his wife is Ann O'Leary is formerly of the HRC, which I guess counts as school reform too.*  You've read about them here before.  Both helped set things up at the USDE during the Obama transition last year. And they got mentioned as an education "power couple" back in 2007. Thanks to the friend of the blog who tipped me off and others who helped fill in. *Correction /clarification:  HRC = Hilary Rodham Clinton not Human Rights Campaign.
