"["Regulation Czar" Cass Sunstein's] nomination was floated two years ago, in the weeks before Obama was sworn in. It was controversial only to liberals, who worried that the president was grooming a friend (both taught law at the University of Chicago) for the Supreme Court. Unacceptable: Sunstein was an iconoclast who believed in 'libertarian paternalism,' and in cost-benefit analyses that could, theoretically, scuttle regulation. In the march to confirmation, opposition switched to the other side." (01/26/11)
