63. A lot of people already know the charges
and just don't care.

People are not unaware of Gitmo, Abu Ghraib, or of the wiretapping. But a large percentage of Americans think they're justified. Sad, but true.

Just airing the charges won't change a lot of people's minds. And the media aren't going to only air one side of it - they're going to air the Republican response, too: Democrats are trying to stage a coup during a time of war! Democrats are coddling terrorists! etc. etc.

There's no reason to believe public sentiment would change suddenly.
