I thought republicans would be happy that President Obama was continuing Bush’s power grabbing. Norquist said, “These are all the powers that you don’t want Hillary Clinton to have.” Dianne Feinstein says, “I think it’s very dangerous because other presidents will come along and this sets a precedent for them.” Therefore, she says, “it’s very important that Congress grapple with and make decisions about what our policies should be on torture, rendition, detainees, and wiretapping lest Bush’s claimed right to set the policies, or his policies themselves, become a precedent for future presidents.”
