I know this is from quite a ways back but just wanted to mention something. When first elected in 08, I, and I'm sure a handful others in the US, actually had this stupid hope that maybe with his background as a constitutional lawyer and professor he'd at least prevent more erosion of our rights and privacy and perhaps begin to roll back what Bush got in place. I very much regret having that tiny spark of hope (though my mom raised me on the saying expect the worst but hope for the best.) I saw that it made sense to have a constitutional lawyer work to erode it & not a blatant crime in one go.
