Good news for Hillary

With the new class-action limiting law suits, trial lawyers will have less money to throw at their puppy Edwards, giving Hillary more room...Honestly, the thought of Hillary or Feingold running in 08 just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Dick Morris aside, Hillary would get swamped. She does not play well over time. She is decent in small doses but starts to become grating over long stretches. Since the 08 campaign will basically begin in 2006, the American public will be far too exposed to her for too long a time. I liken her to George Karl. She'll come out strong, showing some fire, intensity and have early success. Eventually everyone will tire of her antics and just want her to go away. I'm speaking obviously on a national level, I will never claim to understand New Yawkas.

greedy lawyers have taken advantage of the state class action lawsuit
system by filing frivolous lawsuits in certain state courts where they know they
can win big dollar verdicts. Meanwhile, those lawyers’ clients get only small
sums or coupons giving them discounts for the products of the company they just
sued, lawmakers said.
“Frivolous lawsuits are clogging America’s judicial
system, endangering America’s small businesses, jeopardizing jobs and driving up
prices for consumers,” said House Majority Whip Roy Blunt, R-Mo.
Moving those
cases to federal court will ensure that state judges will no longer “routinely
approve settlements in which the lawyers receive large fees and the class
members receive virtually nothing,” he added.
