What Digby Said

I think Atrios or someone should have a copyright on that title, but whatever: Digby is right, as usual:
There were those who warned that allowing anyone president to have unaccountable powers would lead to every successor to fight to maintain them. But no one wanted to believe that a nice Democrat would ever do such a thing. Ahem:
Read it. And weep.

Yes. Bush II's unitary executive theory was and is a nightmare. I knew even as he was pushing that forward that it would never go away.

Power, once obtained, is not lightly relinquished.

I'm disappointed, but not surprised, that Obama has done nothing (and will do nothing) to discredit the idea of the unitary executive.
