  1. We should call for his removal. Durbin, the Whip, would be an obvious improvement.

  2. in the Primaries now. THIS is leadership, and we should show him we really WANT strong leadership by supporting his bid, including donating to his campaign.

    This is MUCH more impressive than anything I’ve seen from Obama, and especially Clinton, who to me is a war enabler.

    GO CHRIS!!

  3. I’m ‘overhearing’ in leftblogistan, it sounds like Harry has been very busy making lots of backroom deals.

    Like you, if there is even another hint that he is trying to shut down Dodd….I am ready to bring the full weight of buhdywrath down about his shoulders.

    For whatever that is worth.

    WAPO this afternoon:

    San Francisco: Will you join Sen. Chris Dodd’s hold and proposed filibuster on any FISA bill that includes retroactive immunity for telecoms? Thanks for joining us for this chat today, Sen. Biden, and thanks for the leadership you provide the Democratic Party and America.

    Sen. Joe Biden: Yes.

    That was easy.  See?  None of the qualifications, doublespeak, “we don’t know what’s going to come out of committee” obfuscations necessary.  Either you support immunity for telecoms who engaged in criminal activity, or you don’t.  It’s kind of an either-or thing.

    I think it should be noted that what Dodd displayed here was leadership.  L-E-A-D-E-R-S-H-I-P.  Something we like to see from our leaders, and something that anyone thinking about being one of our leaders should consider.
