Olson’s Heir?

President Bush is expected to soon name a successor to Ted Olson as U.S. solicitor general. Conservatives would be pleased if it turned out to be any of the three now rumored as leading candidates.

All are Federalist Society members and veterans of outgoing Atty. Gen. John Ashcroft’s team: Assistant Attorney General for the Environment Tom Sansonetti; Paul D. Clement, who is currently acting solicitor general; and law professor Viet D. Dinh, former assistant attorney general for legal policy. Dinh only slightly dimmed his star among conservative admirers when he recently advocated a voting seat for the District of Columbia in the House of Representatives.
