From our January cover story "The 50 Most Dangerous Liberals in America":


Legal Adviser for the U.S. State Department

State Department legal adviser and rumored judicial nominee Harold Koh rejects traditional notions of American legal sovereignty.

To this end, Koh has argued that the U.S. Constitution can and should be interpreted through the prism of international law and the "evolving" concept of "global human rights."
