Dodd runs on unique campaign platform
One would think that running for election would assume the underlying principle that you're running to uphold the Constitution.
That's not necessarily so these days.
So when Chris Dodd explains that he's running to defend and honor his oath of office, which requires him to uphold the Constitution, it means that the current President, and some of the other presidential candidates, are not quite as concerned as he about the document which is the basis for our government.
The constitution exists to protect the rights and freedoms of the people of this country, not the rights and freedoms of the government, its leaders, or its corporate sponsors.
Dodd's principled stand against the FISA bill should be front page news, but I haven't read a major news account of it yet.
