Given that roughly 37% of the nation's voters are registered Republicans, I'd have to say this isn't a surprising revelation.

During the 2008 presidential campaign, then-Illinois Senator Barack Obama promised to slow “the rise of the oceans” and “heal” the planet if elected President of the United States. And of course, when he was elected -- as far as I can tell -- none of that actually happened. But it’s worth pointing out that in early 2009 he made another, perhaps more realistic promise to the American public: overseeing an open and transparent administration:

“Transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of my presidency.”

So, five years...
