There are so many different ways this country has been running to hell in a handcart, we haven't even scratched the surface of this subject yet: A lot of the above suppositions of what Obama might do sound reasonable. But the bipartisan commission idea in particular (the one that would theoretically be led by McCain) is in interesting idea for what it leaves unsaid. Assuming all these people end up getting pre-emptive pardons before Bush leaves, what would be the point of such an exercise? Just finding out who's to blame, even if you can't prosecute them? Or would the purpose be holding responsible the person who ordered the actions and issued the executive pardons?
