    It makes me sad to think that Sandra Day O’Connor is what passes for a “liberal jurist” these days.Report

    Is there a site like “Things liberals like”? Because, if not, there should be. I had no idea they liked Wilson so much. When I was an undergrad, our professor basically told us he was an overzealous, feeble-minded ideologues. (Actually, come to think of it, that prof probably was not a liberal.)Report

    Wilson was deeply racist. I guess it says something about liberals that they can overlook that in favor of his anti-trust policies. Wilson is also responsible for the intellectual argument in favor of having the executive be at the center of our political system, rather than Congress. I just don’t see a lot to like about him.Report
