I also watched Sullivan's interview, and your observation of him is pretty close to what I think of him. He is right about Obama being perhaps the only adult in D.C.; but I also feel that any pursuit of Bush administration officials would have been counter-productive. The Republicans would have fought it tooth and nail, with help from the mainstream media (which sat back and did nothing when Bush ran riot).

Granted, it would have made some progressives feel better, but at the end, it would have collapsed and a lot of important legislation over the past year would have been rendered naught. And it would have taken years to convict anyone in the Bush administration.

Great post, as always.
