Bill and Hilary Clinton emerged from a Yale Law School milieu that admired litigation as the remedy for practically every social ill and assumed that the more people could be persuaded to assert their rights in court, the better off society would be — what some of us call the invisible-fist theory. In office, they proceeded to lend a hand as some of their supporters in the organized plaintiffs bar established themselves as the richest and most powerful lawyers in history, setting up as a “fourth branch” of government and recycling tobacco-fee fortunes into assaults on gunmakers, HMOs, Microsoft, and dozens of other targets. At the same time, on a personal level, the Clintons themselves were coming to experience the intense miseries of destructive litigation — an ordeal through which they set a very poor example of how to behave, and from which they appear to have learned precisely nothing.
