    Because no matter how criminal Bush was, the second a Republican gets into power you will see Democrats being thrown in jail for absolutely nothing.

    So Democrats need either the country to howl so loud that Republicans cannot pretend to ignore it, or they need Republicans to actually LEAD on it.
