Reid capitulating on FISA, Dodd pressured
Keep you eyes open as Harry Reid brings the FISA bill, complete with telecom immunity to the floor of the Senate for a vote within the first few weeks of the Senate's return to Washington.
Once again Glenn Greenwald explicates the complicated turns of Reid's parliamentary maneuverings, the pressure being brought on important players, the fickle nature of the Democratic caucus, and the treatment of Connecticut's Chris Dodd as a renegade.
Chris Dodd could use our support, because it appears as if he'll get precious little from his colleagues.
