Keith Olbermann on Obama and executive power

He spends several minutes on the issue, during which I don't once feel like smacking him! Glenn Greenwald has the video, and commentary. Including this terribly relevant quote from the American Prospect:
From a civil libertarian point of view, we're in a much worse place than we were during the Bush administration, when Democrats were willing to oppose Bush's expansive claims of executive authority. Now we have only muted criticism from Democratic legislators and hysterical cries from Republicans that Obama isn't going far enough.
Ah, partisanship. Is there nothing you can't fuck up?
