What's interesting is that the two inclusive justices are conservative, rather than liberal.

That's not really all that surprising. Liberals tend to be much more elitist (not using that word as a slight). Conservatives tend to go to less prestigious schools to a certain degree. Conservative justices having 'less prestigious' clerks than their liberal counterparts makes perfect sense.

Yeah, liberals tend to be less distrustful of the academic elite.
