    If the November election go against him, he could actually be asked some of the nasty questions that the GOP's control of Congress have prevented from been asked up to now.
    Prosecuting world leaders is now becoming Fashionable, who is to say how far that one could go?
    Minions have answered for 'crimes' which many belive originated in orders from the top 'The Buck stops here'.
