Why So Hard to Understand?

Senator Feinstein is quizzing President Bush about the President's "plenary powers" (she considerately defined the word for him in the course of her question). She's obviously trying to elicit a comment on the wiretapping controversy.

What is so difficult to understand? The President is obligated to follow the law, unless the law is unconstitutional. A law would be unconstitutional if it infringes upon the constitutionally-bestowed powers of the President. Is any particular law unconstitutional? Can't answer -- that's a question that might come before the Court.

That's all there is to say.
