Depends on the 2008 elections.  If the current party in the White House maintains its position, not likely.

Of course, I have no objection to Christian's strategy

not rule out legal approaches without more investigation
of the various possibilities.

Legal investigation is expensive.  And you never know how a court is going to rule until you file and serve your lawsuit.  Of course, it is possible to do legal research ahead of time and get something of an idea, but we are talking about three weeks of 50-hour weeks of research at least.  That is a massive undertaking.
