Political concerns first, Constitution second

Ann Althouse has a roundup of Heller reactions here. I though this from lawprof Sandy Levinson was particularly interesting:

As a partisan Democrat, I confess to being relieved that the dissenters did not prevail, for the upholding of the D.C. ordinance would, in effect, have served as a massive in-kind campaign contribution to John McCain.
Nice to know that a law professor sees interpreting the Constitution as an election-year tactic.
