    is prioritizing.  He wants to get energy, healthcare, etc. resolved.  Then, he will deal with investigating the heinous crimes of the cheney administration.

    •  Well - there's this thing called the statute (8+ / 0-)

      of limitations.  8 years for torture.  The clock is ticking.

      If the very soul of a nation is on the back burner of his priorities, we are lost as a nation, trying to find our way back from the darkness.
