It's really pretty obvious. When you graduate from law school the only thing you are concerned with is getting a good job. Most of Barack's law school friends probably went into the big firms. Another group went into public interest work, very few people have any interest in politics.
So the obvious happened, Barack drifted away from his law school friends when he went into politics.
It was the same at Cal's (University of California at Berkeley's) law school. I graduated in 1981 and have been practicing law ever since.
Excellent question. I have other questions. Why haven't we heard of any friends in general, any old girlfriends...didn't he date? How about his drug buddies..he wrote about his cocaine use...surely he had friends in all strata of life. Without some conspiracy thoughts, I'd really like to know. I can assure you if he was a republican, we'd know everything he'd ever done wrong on all headlines and we'd likely know the last time he farted if it didn't smell like a democrat's. The media will be revealed for its unbelievable coverup of anything lacking in his past. And now....I'm hearing "camelot2"...the hypnotic following he has is incredible. Will it make him a bad president? nope....will it obscure anything negative about his presidency??? completely. Get ready for a 4 year honeymoon.
