If you’re a lawyer and you defend a man who brutally raped a woman before shooting her and burying her alive, you’ll be a hero in the legal profession.
If you defend a brutal cop-killer, President Obama might appoint you to be in charge of Civil Rights for the entire country.
If you defend terrorists who murdered American soldiers and innocent civilians, Obama might appoint you Attorney General of the United States.
And if you’re an unscrupulous ambulance chaser who acquires a vast fortune by using Junk Science to sue baby doctors out of existence and cheats on your wife while she’s dying of cancer, the Democrat Party considers you presidential timber.
All of those causes… rapists, murderers, terrorists, suing baby doctors… fully supported and respectable for the legal profession.
