It Ain't Over 'Till its Over...

Forget impeaching Bush and Cheney, Sen. Joe Biden, D-DE., has a delicious alternative.

In an interview with Newsweek, Biden readily admits his presidential hopes are a "long shot" but then drops a bomb that makes Howling Latina glad he's running for president and has a national platform from which to speak.

[I]mpeachment like everything else is a matter of priorities and responsibility. In order to move on impeachment now, we would be put in a position at a very, very delicate time in our nation’s history, of having necessarily to take our eye off the ball on a host of other things that will have longer-lasting impact on the security of this country. As a practical matter, it sucks all the oxygen out of the air. We would effectively be paralyzed for the next six months or longer. … The alternative, and it’s taken me time to think through, I think we should be acquiring and accumulating all the data that is appropriate for possibly bringing criminal charges against members of this administration at a later date.
Sweeeeet! No last-minute presidential pardon, only shame and jail time for crimes against the constitution and the rule of law.

Unless....Bush gives every person in his administration, including himself, an unconditional pardon as he leaves the White House.

He wouldn't dare, would he....?

H/T Think Progress.
