My friend David Harlow pointed

My friend David Harlow pointed me to this piece in National Review Online by Roger Clegg of the Center for Equal Opportunity about the Michigan preferential admissions cases. Clegg is reacting to the story we posted from yesterday’s Washington Post on the debate within the administration over whether to file a brief opposing the University of Michigan’s racial discrimination. Clegg wonders why the administration might think that opposing racial preferences is risky politically. As Clegg notes, such preferences are wildly unpopular among Americans, as has been shown in study after study and confirmed in a number of elections. Clegg also notes that the Lott fiasco might hand President Bush the opportunity to explain why opposing discrimination, be it against whites or blacks, is the right thing to do. Let’s hope that President Bush seizes this opportunity.
