I like Gerry Spence more than Alan Dershowits. Also Bill Clinton was excellent in presenting argument. "That depends on what your definition of is is." Of course he was being deposed at the time.

Dershowitz? Uh, no.

This is one really poorly written and poorly researched and empty piece.

Don't waste your time.

Thank you for the interesting article. However, I would have included James H. Wilson on the list, signer of both the Declaration and Constitution, who also articulated the concept of separation of powers. Having also served during the Revolution as a Brigadier General, and later as an original member (serving 8 years) of the U.S. Supreme Court along side John Jay.

Of course I am a little biased, as I am one of his descendents.

noted and my favorite lawyer...the one i've always admired who lived his standards at a time when it really wasn't too popular was sir thomas seems that everyone during henry's reign was at risk of death...he killed anyone he wanted regardless of any reason....
