As far as I know he was the lawyer that represented Bush in the case Bush vs Gore. He is a republican lawyer though he is fighting for gay rights. His wife Barbara was killed in 9/11. She was a commentator for CNN. Now he is married to a woman named Lady. Anyways... At work we have two aussies that we bathe every week and they come to doggy daycare. We jokingly call them the rich kids. I absolutely LOVE these two dogs. They are seriously wonderful!!!! I just found out that their owners are Ted and Lady Olson. I knew their last name was Olson but hadn't put two and two together because I don't pay a whole lot of attention to politics, but ya... thought it was neat to learn a little about one of our clients. Just wanted to let it be known that Ted Olson has some super nice dogs. I also used to walk a senator's dog a few years ago. Can't remember what senator though since I never saw the owners face to face much. Just mainly dealt with their dog. They did give me a really awesome basket with fancy wine and crackers when I had to quit that job though.
