Watergate entailed a long list of serious crimes; only the most superficial were ever investigated, let alone prosecuted.  

The underlying structure that made the abuses possible was left in place.  Not an accident, I think.

I suppose I am referring to Ford's words "Our long national nightmare is over".

When the same words are uttered about Bush, I won't believe them either unless the Democrats set about undoing Bush's damage, which they won't because the imperial presidency is very convenient, if only you hold it.

Those whom the Gods wish to destroy They first make mad. -- Euripides
