    Bush will probably put up a nondescript bureaucrat to avoid any controversy. He is really a complete lameduck at this point and even he must know it at some level.

    Good news: the long national nightmare is just about over.

    :rofl:
    Federal attorneys been driving down your street with sirens blaring ? Most Americans have no idea who this guy is and their lives have not been affected by him one iota. If you are expecting a big change in any policy currently in place be prepared to be disappointed again. Who are you going after next ?

    Is it really a nightmare to know that congress investigated the firing of 8 attorneys? I’d simply call it typical partisan political fighting. It was funny to see the defense holler “executive privilege” so often. Yes, I understand why we need executive privilege but at the same time I think that on such an issue as firings, the executive branch should have opened up. If it had nothing to hide, why was it so secretive? Anyway, I’m glad that it is over. I hope that Bush will select someone more open and forthright but that is probably wishful thinking on my part.

    Bush repeatedly offered to allow all his people to talk all the Democrats wanted. Just not under oath, having seen how that worked so well for Libby.

    Exactly why was THAT unacceptable?

    Why didn’t he “allow” them to testify under oath if there was nothing to hide? As for Libby, I think that he was an embarrassment too. If you don’t recall, you should say that you do not recall. Otherwise, you should answer the question with what you know. It is as simple as that.

    Oh. Before you start ad homonym attacks calling me a liberal and saying that I would not have held Democrats to such a standard, let me say that I certainly would. Clinton was an embarrassment too with the Paula Jones and Monica mess. I expect everyone, especially those in high office, to be honest and straightforward.

    this has little to do with "policy".

    and in answer to your question: whoever starts rising about the rest of the field in the republican primary campaign.

    duh.

    if they are not under oath, then their lies would not be perjury.

    wow. I cannot believe you asked that question!
