    idea of postponing the NYC mayoral elections after 9/11 and leaving him in charge for a while.  New Yorkers were smart enough to reject this idea the moment it was hatched, but the Republican authoritarian mind is always thinking about ways to seize and hold power.  The idea of Bush/Cheney staying in power for a while is not that far fetched for an administration that demonstrated time and time again that they would flout the law when it served their purposes.  Dismissing this idea out of hand is revisionist history.
