I agree with McMegan on this.

The American President - Megan McArdle - National - The Atlantic:
"So too, I suspect, with tormenting prisoners, and civil liberties. Maybe if Mark and I were president, we'd support this stuff too. Which is not, by the way, an argument for doing it. It's an argument that we need to serve as a check on the president. Because we're not going to fix it by just electing a better person to be president. Whoever we elect will still be president, with all that implies."

I like to think that I am a better person than that but I have a horrible feeling that I just might not be. Are any of us?
