29. I agree with most of what you've laid out. However, my concern is that everyone we like.....

shouldn't escape prison, just because they're "on our team". I remember the cries from a handful of DU'ers who were insisting that the president pardon John Edwards in the event he was convicted. I've read, with amusement, some of the posts in this thread. People who think the president can't do anything right, declaring that they've had it, and this is their proverbial last straw. What's even more amazing is that some seem to be admiring Bush's commutation of Libby, but at the time they were outraged, I tell ya.


I think progressives need to be consistent. A common complaint, of the left, is that there's no difference between Obama and (*), but there seem to be certain instances where they think he should be more like Bush? It's just too rich, and one might say, hypocritical?
