    Time will tell. One interesting list, interesting to me since I've seen many here calling for trials of Bush & administration. A start:

    Supposing Obama Were a Bipartisan

    I've been there, watched it scrubbed and changed in just the last 24 hours. 1984 alive.

    Do you plan to send an email? Why or why not?

    I'll be honest, I probably won't because I'd rather not be on a list. but that's my fear and my fault then, rather than anything else.

    Bush was 1984 if you ask me, with the warrantless wiretapping and the increase in spying and so on, and conflating peace with war and torture with justice. Et. cetera.

    Really? Always above board what they were doing, all with agreement from congress. This incoming group, they've been scrubbing their sites, sending the DOJ on those that disagree with them. Be careful what you wish for, whoops, too late.

    I think those are some pretty awful ideas, particularly the one about consulting congress and picking conservative judges. Isn't that what got jimmy carter into trouble.

    One has to question the partisanship of the writer on the issue of investigations. Certain inquiries may be appropriate.

    And why do we trust something named after the guy who gave us Hoovervilles?

    finally, where were the great bi-partisan ideas espoused by the institute while Bush played on every division that exists in this country?

    Bipartisanship is a two way street. If Obama supports conservative agenda are you going to support his? How about his tax package for protection of Limbaugh, withdrawal from Iraq for charter schools, and heath care for not prosecuting Bush for treason. Sound fair? Personally I think cons are getting the better end of the deal...

    Would I support him? If something were offered that I could agree with. So far all I've seen is Russia threatening, him caving. Then there is his 'stimulus pkg', more of what happened in the spring, before the $700 billion. I'm still hoping for better, but will not be surprised if not forthcoming, after all, it's what he ran on, from what little we can discern from the little he told us.

    Your not telling us what you can agree with outside of conservative agenda. If that is all you have to offer then what is the point in his reaching across the isle?
