    The gravity of the issue... but I wonder:

    Is there a sane Republican in the administration -- or the GOP proper -- that understands where we stand as a nation?

    Spring 2007 is far too early to count any chickens - but at this point and time, I think the odds of a Republican being sworn into office Jan 2009 are fading fast.   None of the GOP candidates excite their base (except the ones with no hope of winning -- Tancredo, Hunter, etc).

    They face a hostile Senate landscape in terms of seats up.

    Is there ANYONE in the GOP that honestly thinks that it's a good idea for this?

    So let's say it all plays out... let's say the story for the next 12 months revolves around a Presidential power grab.

    Let's even say his packed court AWARDS him that win.

    So let's see... Dubya gets to spend the last few months of his failed Presidency - in the midst of a campaign where the remaining GOPers behind him in both the House and Senate will be running from him like tomorrow - really being king?

    And then have all this newly minted power turned over to HRC?  Or Obama?  Or Edwards?

    For the record - I wouldn't want Edwards or Obama (and no, absolutely not HRC) to have that much power, either...

    But you know what, if the GOP insists on knotting its own noose - I think I've done all I can to stop them.  

    I guess everyone's got their own blog now.

      I don't think it's in any way a 'good thing' for two branches of government to be playing constitutional chicken...

      But geez - the guy keeps intentionally swerving into a collision course, and I think it's probably time we just relied on our safety belts and (at this point) bigger, safer vehicle.
