So far none of the candidates for president has answered some of the questions I would like to hear answered:
- Will, and when, will the candidate initiate a review with the purpose of repudiating Bush’s excessive signing statements?
- Will the candidate promise not to use signing statements except to identify ambiguities and difficulties so that Congress may provide clarifications?
- Will, and when, will the candidate repudiate the concept of the “unitary executive”?
- Will, and when, will the candidate recognize that the Constitution of the United States not only limits the powers of the United States Federal government, including the executive, within the geographic borders of the United States, but everywhere.
