Not with a bang but a whimper
"If there's a political strategy not to cooperate, there's not a whole lot that you can do about it."
Well, you could have indicted a boatload of Republican lawbreakers and sent them to jail for torture, warrantless surveillance, corruption in Iraq, and so forth. Then you could have indicted another boatload of banksters and sent them to jail for accounting control fraud. You could have cleaned house.
That would have destroyed the Republican brand for a generation, and the conservative movement, too. And that would have been change that brought hope.
But, really, it's just a lot easier to sell yourself out to the highest bidder. Which the Dems did. And here we are!
