Obama's animal guy

Cass Sunstein is a thoughtful legal scholar, and a solid choice for his new job in the Obama administration reviewing regulations. He is not hard core anti-business as are many of Obama's appointees in the Energy and Labor Departments, and the EPA.

But in one area - animal rights -Sunstein is off the deep end.  He is in favor of lawsuits on behalf of animals, less use or no use of animals in medical research, and ending the consumption of meat products. Not surprisingly, he is not a fan of hunting, either. PETA has found their man in the White House. Veterinarians and medical researchers, beware.
