28. Because what's public now is how the law is applied.
Edited on Sat Oct-18-08 11:55 PM by bleever

Before, as exemplified by the U.S. Attorneys scandal, how the application of the law was determined was under the umbrella of "executive privilege", as applied so exhaustively by this administration.

Now, those legal questions have become part of the public discourse. And the "fundamentals" are strong for our side.

I may be wrong; it's happened before. But this is my sense of things.
