I've been convinced since Condi Rice resisted testifying at the 9/11 hearings that some people at the highest levels of Bush's administration are vulnerable to prosecution. At the time, I thought of treason (Plame "outing"), but since then other possibilities have emerged. It frightens to think about what desperate people with no scruples and unchecked power might do to avoid losing power. Remember that even in the best case they will remain in office for 3+ more months.
I'd like nothing more than to see those people rot in jail, but if this threat were removed they would no longer be cornered rats (just rats, and my apologies to rodents). Kerry could do it in a speech, in the context of intending to unite our polarized electorate, or privately, during negotiations to stop post-election challenges from their side.
Kossacks are the smartest people I know. What do you think of this idea?
