Marc Ambinder over at the Atlantic has a small preview of what will be an important decision from the Supreme Court in Wisconsin Right to Life v. The Federal Election Commission. The case challenges McCain-Feingold's restrictions on speech. Wisconsin Right to Life was represented by one James Bopp. Most of us Romney followers know him from his advising role to Governor Romney, but in the conservative movement he is most prominently known for his role in arguing conservative causes before the Supreme Court.

Obviously this decision will have political implications (that Ambinder lays out nicely). At the basic level, a win for WRTL would be a win for Romney. A win for the FEC would be a win for McCain and possibly Thompson, who was also a big part of passing McCain-Feingold. However, if the FEC wins this case, I can't see that McCain will suddenly have a boost in popularity. Conservatives are decidedly against McCain-Feingold and upholding the constitutionality of the law would not suddenly sway conservative votes.

The decision is supposed to be out today and I will have my take as soon as I can read it.
