Obama Vs. Constitution

Lily Tomlin's quip ("No matter how cynical you are, it is impossible to keep up") has more and more relevance as the shape of Obama's presidency unfolds. But the frightening sameness of his appointments pales in comparison to the Constitutional questions that dog him. I'm not sure that his supporters have appreciated the depth of which these questions will undermine his presidency, and how questions of illegitimacy are dangerous to a functioning government.
