Well, at least I know he won't be my commencement speaker.
He might be. We'll see how this year's ceremony goes.
I went to Wisconsin for UG; the year before my graduation the commencement speaker was Jerry Zucker (super conservative, hilarious guy) and mine was Bradley Whitford (super liberal, hilarious guy). Neither one gave a particularly weighty speech, but both were really enjoyable. I would much, much prefer to have an entertaining cap on the day than a cliched speech about how important being a lawyer is (seriously, if you don't get that after 3 years of law school, you're not going to). The school has a last lecture and plenty of other graduation speeches to go over the usual "go out there and make the world a better place, hour by billiable hour" speeches; I like that there's at least a possibility of a speaker who has done a lot of interesting (if controversial) things with his life and his degree.
Ultimately, I really don't care who the speaker is. It doesn't really have any bearing on the education or future of anyone from the school, and hopefully will just serve as an interesting set piece in an otherwise dry proceeding. I can think of many better commencement speakers, but also far worse. (UVA's speaker this year is the commissioner of the PGA tour... probably a good speech, but who's excited about it?).
