Bush's Private Property Executive Order:

This is interesting. I think it means that the Bush administration is stating that the federal government will not take property according to the guidelines set forth in Kelo, but rather will opt for a more restrictive view (indeed a more constitutional view) of what is a permissible taking under the 5th Amendment.

Good for Bush (for once). This is exactly how another branch of government should react when the Court refuses to properly recognize an individual right under the Constitution -- by explicitly promising that they won't violate that right.
