This alt house: the Kelo homestead.
I've commented several times here about in Kelo, IJ won more by losing than it would have by winning. Now Ann Althouse, also writing about Kelo, makes the same point, more poeticly.
Can you think of some other examples, in law or elsewhere, where the loser, losing conspicuously, took on some golden glow that served his interests better than winning?

The answers she's getting include Clarence Darrow, Japan, Newdow, Wm F Buckley, Lincoln and Goldwater. Wm F Shatner, Daniel Drezner.
