52. I Can't Argue With You Koko
I always respect your opinions and perspectives. I'd like to think of the glass being half full rather than half empty for no other reason than to keep myself from going insane.

A couple points/thoughts. While a lot of evidence has been shreaded, there appears to be plenty out there that does exist to provide solid grounds for prosecutions. The "executive privilidge" veil is broad because of that. Some drives can be scrubbed, but if you can read between the lines in what Leahy has indicated, not all have been or that he has some other evidence that could be quite powerful. The courts will have to rule on this and the clear cut abuse of privilidge can't stand even in the Roberts court.

I agree that once the power is granted, it's hard to return it back. Part of this job will be on our shoulders...and others...as we work to elect more liberal and progressive representatives. I would hope our goals here are long term and that each election sets up the stage for the next round of advances.

Turning around what will be 8 years of executive abuse won't happen overnight...even more important, 20 years of Repugnican messes (going back to Raygun) and going through the Gingrich years and onto the boooosh regime will take years to correct as well. Consider it our Project for a new American Century. :rofl:
