Corner Solutions in Policy

It seems to me Jason Kuznicki (via Andrew Sullivan) isn't describing a corner solution so much as lexicographic preferences. Corner solutions don't necessarily emerge because of preferences - they can also emerge because of the starkness of the available tradeoff. What Kuznicki is describing - the absolute subbordination of everything else to a single priority in our preference ranking - seems more like lexicographic preferences.

But I could be wrong.
