    Clement will not be nominated.

    Republicans will not win the presidency in '08.

    Democrats WILL keep Congress with improved margins.

    It won't fucking matter, anyway, because neither the Dems nor the Republicans want to address the substantive issues facing us in the future.

    Once the Dems take over the White House, our biggest problem will be the Democrats continuing abuse of our constitutional rights . . . because power corrupts.

      it could be the administration will keep Clement in the job and gum it to death.

      You think a real AG will be nominated?

        Whoever the nominee would be will have to swear to enforce the law - under oath - unless Harry Reid's brain has truly turned to jello.

        I mean - can you imagine the questions you could ask -

        Senator Leahy:  Mr. Nominee, Title 50, US Code, Chapter 36, Subchapter 1, Section 1800 says that any warrantless wiretapping of US citizens is a felony punishable by 5 years in prison and a $10,000.00 fine.  President Bush has admitted ordering warrantless wiretaps against US citizens.  Do you plan to prosecute the President, and, if so, when??

        Nominee:  uh . . .  well . . .
