4 days left

In just about 100 hours, Barack Obama will be the President of the United States. It's a fitting postscript to the Bush years that the best news I've heard all week is that Obama's Attorney-General 1) Says that waterboarding is torture, 2) even when America does it, and 3) the President can't break the law.

How sad is that, that I'm basically bouncing in my chair clapping like a kid on his birthday because for the first time in 8 years, the chief law enforcement officer of the United States of America believes that the government shouldn't break the law???

As a side note, does it seem to anyone else like the course of Bush's 8 years has gone something like:

I) Really long first term;
II) Relatively short second term;
III) In-fucking-terminable last three months.

Because that's how I feel right about now.

Understood. But will they seek prosecution of all law-breakers in govt. from Bush on down? I highly doubt it.

Like you, can't wait to see the back of Bush, Cheney, Rice et al.
