Radley's on to something

President Elect Obama stated in an interview that he would investigate the Bush administration for war crimes, but not turn dumb or bad policy into a crime for political theater. Obviously, that isn't a direct quote, but that is the gyst of what he said. Radley Balko, The Agitator, thinks that is a good idea, but I think Obama can go one better.

I would like to see President Obama investigate the entire Bush administration for all crimes. If he finds criminal activity, he should prosecute vigorously. But, if it really is just bad or dumb policy, he should just as vigorously defend President Bush's right to have that policy.

He'll have a very hard time doing that, considering the strength of the Democratic party's far left. I think Obama has the chance to be a great president if he can keep the nutroots in line and he keeps to the left socially and to the right fiscally.

Good luck dude. You're gonna need it.
