If you’re looking for expert, and I use that word very literally, you can find an excellent write-up by Rick Hansen of Election Law blog here. If you don’t believe me, even Eugene Volokh gushes about Hansen a bit here.

Hansen posits up some interesting analysis and I absolutely agree with his parting shot that this was an excellent set of oral arguments and each of the advocates was impressive. I’m not typically a big fan of election law (stemming solely from the fact that there are only a few fields of law about which I know less), but I thought the arguments today were fascinating and each of the advocates provided an example of superlative advocacy.
