"John Marshall has made his decision. Now let him enforce it."

-Andrew Jackson

What is most astounding about the entire Bush administration is to realize just how far we've fallen. The fact that few have confidence that Bush will actually respect the rule of law harkens back to the very beginnings of the Supreme Court. There won't be any "in your face" showdown with the Supremes. Rather, as I said below, Bush and the Rethugicans will quietly find a way to totally ignore the Hamdan ruling and do whatever they damned well please.

Some folks are expressing confidence and elation that the rule of law has been upheld. I don't hold such confidence. And worse, I have fears about the precedent of Bush's behavior on future Presidents, no matter what the party or ideological proclivities.
