    that Holder will investigate.  All the "uncertainty" is part of the game - Obama and the Dems need political cover to do this, and the groundswell is happening.  I keep saying this, and here goes again.  Obama has studied the playbook, and he knows what the Rethugs will do in retaliation.  If there are enough citizens demanding investigation and prosecution, the charges of partisanship are defanged, and it becomes more dangerous for the thugs to obstruct Obama's programs.

    With the country facing dire problems, it would be stupid to walk into Rove/Atwater's anteroom and hope for the best.

      I imagine that Obama's people have a pretty clear idea of the scope of BushCo's unlawful activities, but I don't think that trumpeting their intention to prosecute is helpful prior to the inauguration. I am pleased and relieved that we've come as far as we have, but I don't trust Bush's people even a little, and wouldn't put anything past them. Let's get Obama in the Oval, and his cabinet confirmed before we count chickens. I hope to be a lot less tense on 1/21.
