Script Notes From WHP

What we need in this scene is a very dramatic showdown over separation of powers. Perhaps we could all pretend to argue amongst ourselves over some picayune case, preferably one that involves a corrupt Louisiana Democrat. That way, not only do we get to look concerned over separation, Hastert gets to look separate, and Gonzales gets to look principled [maybe he could even threaten to resign.]
Then while that’s going, we can get provide cover for getting Hayden–who was behind the big executive branch abrogation of co-equal government in the first season–confirmed and still not have him have to answer to Congress for anything about it. AND we still get to hype a Democratic corruption investigation through the long weekend.
