The World Can't Wait
The New York Times has now published not one
, but two OpEds
suggesting that Bush should step down now, and not wait until Obama's inauguration.
Putting Barack Obama in charge immediately isn’t impossible. Dick Cheney, obviously, would have to quit as well as Bush. In fact, just to be on the safe side, the vice president ought to turn in his resignation first. (We’re desperate, but not crazy.) Then House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would become president until Jan. 20. Obviously, she’d defer to her party’s incoming chief executive, and Barack Obama could begin governing.
Obviously. And let me suggest that this whole senate confirmation of Obama's cabinet should be eliminated. And he should be allowed to add, say, twenty members to the Supreme Court, and let's do away with his reelection in 2012 because that's just a formality that's going to get in the way of his enacting the will of the people. And let's also do away with that pesky little amendment that bans presidents from serving more than two terms.
