Thoughts on VPs? Don't know if this guy is doing it for me.

Obama plays it safe-- this seems to be his legacy in the making. Unfortunately I think his "make a splash" options consist of people even more centrist/conservative than Kaine.

I read somewhere that Bill Clinton has been holed up, refusing to support Obama until a formal and contrite entreaty is made to him (along with assurances of power in the new administration). Yes, Hillary would be a throw of the dice. But I think it would still do more good than harm...

Citizen Flush 

All quiet on the AmCop front, so I'll post a few things...

First off, I'm wondering what sort of precedent this has in American history, and why it wasn't tried earlier in the Bush era.

And perhaps it could be attempted even more effectively? Could one conceivably line up lawyers and judges to be ready to support a citizen's arrest in a state like California? Could activists potentially give Bush alums hell on the lecture circuit for the rest of their lives? Apparently some architects of the war have been cautioned not to go to Europe, where they could be arrested for war crimes. Could the citizen's arrest be similarly deployed here?

And yes, speakingcorpse, I have noted that they were Catholic activists...
