23. unfortunately, she's flat out lying.
There's plenty of well-known evidence of Bush admin lawbreaking. Hardly a week goes by without more being revealed. The congressional Dems under her leadership have been holding fake "hearings" where Bush admin officials, if they bother to show up after being subpoenaed, refuse to answer questions citing "executive privilege". Bush admin officials do this and know already that they'll get away with it because the Dems, under her leadership, have already said that taking them to task is "off the table". So they outright laugh in the face of the american people, knowing that the congressional Dems, under her leadership, have their back.

And justice will never be done.

Also, since Dems are going along with this for the sake of a phony expedience (rolls eyes), whether it's called "to get Dems elected in 08" or "to get important congressional matters done in a bipartisan way" -- this means everything that the Bush admin has set in place will continue in place right through the coming election, after which it'll be completely off the radar. All the infrastructure for spying will still be in place, all the infrastructure for kidnapping, torturing and murdering people, for putting on kangaroo court show trials, for evading the keeping of executive branch records -- all the apparatus and precedent setting for an imperial presidency, in effect a dictatorship -- will still be in place. And the people will never know how much of it, if any, is ever removed -- whatever a future gov't says, whether Dem or Repub, the people will never know if it's a lie, or whether this infrastructure is instead being added to and fine tuned. Because nothing is being done, the US has effectively lost its freedom.

And it'll bite back at ya big time, because these powers aren't in any way benign, or concerned about any ideal except private profits for the most powerful of elites.
