Academics and the Obama Administration:
The Washington Post has a front-page article indicating that several Yale Law faculty members are among the many academics who think a job in the Obama Administration might be worth seeking:
  Yale law professor Dan Kahan said several of his colleagues are for the first time considering leaving their perches for Washington.
  "You know how Obama always said, 'This is our moment; this is our time?' " Kahan said. "Well, academics and smart people think, 'Hey, when he says this is our time, he's talking about us.' "
