      If you still know anyone in the campaign, they might have contacts.  It's likely a hand-written letter won't ever again get through, and email will get lost in the chatter.

      I also favored Clark until he decided not to run, but I'm really happy we got a smart, ethical president.  I understand the position he's forced to take on certain issues, but some principles are too important to let slip.  This issue has got to be dear to Obama's heart - he cut his political teeth on the issue of abuse of criminal suspects; Obama is why all interrogations in Illinois are now videotaped.

        But he needs to take action here. It's not his job to investigate or to prosecute if and when that's called for, but it surely IS his job to protect and defend the Constitution of the U.S., which in the here and now would translate into getting this assignment into the honest and capable hands possible.
