He should be hounded... He should hunted...Consistently.
Even if just one soldier had died...
Even if just one detainee had been tortured...
Even if just one person had been killed by Katrina...
Even if just one person had been illegally wiretapped!

If this were another era, we would be able to watch Bush and family fleeing in a white Ford Bronco down freeways all the way to Paraguay.
The consensus seems to be growing that, despite his oft-repeated desire to “look forward rather than backward” when it comes to the Bush administration’s authorization of the use of torture on detainees in American custody, President-elect Barack Obama is going to have to open some sort of official investigation of Bush-era war crimes once he takes office.
Salon’s Glenn Greenwald laid out the case in his blog on Sunday, arguing that it’s no longer optional. Given that the United States is a party to the United Nations Convention on Torture - a treaty signed by President Ronald Reagan –- and that the U.S. Constitution holds that international treaties are the highest law of the land, the United States really doesn’t have a choice: “U.S. law requires prosecutions for those who authorize torture,” writes Greenwald.
Oh, for the beauties of justice!
Just a thought.
