The most popular question on change.gov, the Obama transition website, is one from Democrats.com’s Bob Fertik: “Will you appoint a Special Prosecutor — ideally Patrick Fitzgerald — to independently investigate the gravest crimes of the Bush administration, including torture and warrantless wiretapping?”
George Stephanopoulos put the question to Obama in his interview, which is running tomorrow morning, and Obama apparently answered. So far they’re just teasing it. Not completely clear if Obama addressed the question in a meaty or meaningful way or just sort of brushed it off. But I guess we’ll know tomorrow.
