    ...asserting that the Republicans would have been knocked out of power and Reaganism fatally wounded by prosecutions is an overly bold claim. We don't know what would have happened. They may have easily beaten those prosecutions, the populace may have rejected this approach entirely and send not just the Democratic majority packing in 2010 but Obama in 2012. I've heard many people in my lifetime say the Republican Party is finished for a generation or two (Nixon debacle) or that the Republican Party was the permanent new majority (after Bush I won in 1988) despite Iran-contra. So I take such speculation with an entire salt shaker in hand.

    Don't tell me what you believe, show me what you do and I will tell you what you believe.
