    unless everyone is willing to take on faith that this President will honor statements made as far as future actions.

    That sounds bad, I know it does but it is fact. If this President decided tomorrow that there was a "credible" reason to ignore his own directive he could, and that says nothing of any future president that will be allowed to determine for his/herself the definition of the law.

    Democrats shouldn't assume they have our vote. They have to earn it.~Kos
