The Dodd Abides

As promised, Chris Dodd will filibuster the FISA bill because the version Harry Reid is bringing to the floor contains immunity for the telecoms who assisted the Bush administration with their domestic spying program. Ted Kennedy and Russ Feingold have agreed to support the filibuster. There's more at the Chris Dodd blog here.

No word from candidates Clinton and Obama, who are, of course, still senators and ostensibly support Dodd's decision to filibuster.
