Is a Constitutional Showdown Looming?

I've long felt that the Bush Administration has treated our Constitution with contempt. Now with the Democrats in control of Congress and the President's approval rating threatening to sink into the twenties, its likely that the issue will come to a head. Bush is now asserting, without any legal authority, that he has the right to seach mail without a warrant. Meanwhile, the Whitehouse is preparing for a legal confrontation, which has lead to the exit of the "best darn Whitehouse legal counsel ever."

I predict these are the first inklings of a big story.
