Biden, a breath of fresh air (and promise!)

This from ABC News' Matthew Jaffe.

Joe Biden, out campaigning in West Palm Beach, Florida, said several things of interest:

First of all he stressed that "'In an Obama-Biden administration, we will not have an attorney general who blatantly breaks the law. We will not have a president who doesn't understand the Constitution. And I will not be a vice-president who thinks he's not part of any of the three branches of government.'"

"Looking to the future but with one eye on the past, Biden also promised that an Obama-Biden government would go through Bush administration data with 'a fine-toothed comb' and pursue criminal charges in necessary."

"'If there has been a basis upon which you can pursue someone for a criminal violation, they will be pursued, not out of vengeance, not out of retribution - out of the need to preserve the notion that no one, no one, no attorney general, no president, no one is above the law."

Finally, words of hope; words of challenge; words we've waited for seven and one half very long, desultory years to hear! Finally the lawlessness and corruption instituted by the Bush administration will come to an end! And may the guilty receive their just desserts.
