it just never stops, does it?
every conservative i have ever spoken with at some point explains to me that the constitution is not a living document; that it is to be interpreted precisely in its words; and that judges who set precedents that conservatives don't like are 'activist judges'
odd, then that conservatives can so casually overlook this egregious disregard of the cornerstone of the republic.
my, how quickly the conservative congressmen and women roll over and play dead for the president, abdicating their role within our government, forever eroding the importance of elected representation of the american citizenry.
this behavior is both cynical and shameful, and if you don't feel like you've been slapped in the face, then you really need to re-read the constitution, and re-evaluate what it means to be an american.
if bill clinton had pulled this stunt, every conservative in amerca would be in the streets with pitchforks and torches, and to believe otherwise is flagrant equivocation.
