    SCOTUS would be deciding the issue of the validity of such an order within months.

    Then it would all be up to Kennedy's vote on lifting the stay after hearing the parties' arguments.  The administration could lose.

    And lose well before 1/20/09.

    The influence of the [executive] has increased, is increasing, and ought to be diminished.

      for a year.  We don't even have a magistrate's ruling yet.  I suspect that we're a couple of months away from an appealable order from the trial judge.  Briefing, oral argument, and the issuance of the decision by an appellate panel would probably take up most of 2008 even if the trial judge were to issue an order in 2007.

      Running out the clock should be very easy.

      Some men see things as they are and ask why. I see things that never were and ask why not?
