FEC v Beaumont argument

The AP's Gina Holland reports that (despite the predictions that Rick Hasen and I made) the oral argument of this case seemed to go pretty well for the government. You can't always predict the outcome by the oral argument, but Sam Heldman may have called this one correctly.

Nina Totenberg had a report on NPR's All Things Considered this evening that was just as grim for the respondent. I will link to it when NPR puts the story on its audio archives (probably tomorrow).

Update: Here is Totenberg's story (audio file).
