The whole membership of the House stands for election every two years. There may be a midpoint be- tween life tenure and quick firing capacity, and that may be in the kind of temporary contract approaches that are being used in the British higher service.

That means that one of the most important roles of the Legal Adviser is to advise the Secretary when a policy option being proposed is “lawful but awful.” As Herman Pfleger, one former Legal Adviser, put it: “You should never say no to your client when the law and your conscience say yes; but you should never, ever say yes when your law and conscience say no.” And because my job is simply to provide the President and the Secretary of State with the very best legal advice that I can give them, I have felt little conflict with my past roles as a law professor, dean and human rights lawyer, because as my old professor, former legal adviser Abram Chayes, once put it: “There’s nothing wrong with a lawyer holding the United States to its own best standards and principles.” A third role the Legal Adviser plays is defender of the United States interests in the many international fora in which the U.

For example, President Reagan proposed to eliminate the Department of Energy in order to save money. There is not a single bit of evidence that a fundamental restruc- turing will in and of itself reduce the deficit or improve the effi- ciency of government programs.
