    That's the problem with the contingent of followers who are going along with the administration on this one.

    It was always about him personally, and the exceptional personal qualities they perceived in him. For them, policy never entered--as long as he promised them that things would be different. Because he was, somehow, special and transcendent, and that trumped everything.

    Torture is torture, no matter if instigated by a President Bush or countenanced by a President Obama.
