Out of the loop

From a forthcoming book, excerpted in the Washington Post, comes an enlightening view of the politics of the Bush White House. Meanwhile, VP Cheney has been ordered by a Federal judge to preserve all records of his time in office.

I'm not thrilled about Obama. I've never voted for a democrat for president. One of the best reasons to vote for this one is the off chance that we might actually get an investigation (and/or leaks) that tells us what the hell has been going on for the past eight years.

It's going to be interesting to watch the weeks between an Obama victory (of it happens) and the end of the Bush administration. I expect a lot of paper-shredding and "accidental" erasures. I wonder: can a president pre-emptively pardon himself?
