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?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
