And while I am on the subject, can I remind people that Dick Cheney made a personal profit of $40 million dollars from "no-bid," i.e. corrupt, contracts, which he awarded his own company while he was Vice President? As far as I know, there has never, ever, in the entire history of the United States, been an example of blatant criminality in a Presidential administration that compares in any way to that, either in the massiveness of the amount or in the blatant disregard for any fig-leaf of legality. And yet, no one seems willing to call this monstrous abuse of power what it is.
Cheney should have been imprisoned for this alone, but it pales to virtual insignificance compared to his other wrongdoing while in office.
