DeLay promotes his vision
Advertisements [?]
Tom DeLay, the former Republican congressman from Texas and House majority leader who resigned in June under an ethical cloud, came to Long Island yesterday to promote his vision of "moral clarity" that he said should guide Americans' discussion about how to best combat terrorism....

During several hours at Nassau Community College where he was invited to speak, he attracted about 200 people....He called the upcoming vote "very strange," and said "the mood of the people is hard to gauge.

"The Democrats are incredibly energized," DeLay said in a news conference. "The Republicans are not so energized. They are very disappointed in the leadership of their party." Unlike the Democrats, who "know how they are going to vote and are ready to go vote," DeLay said many Republicans are less certain.
...
"I don't think water boarding is torture," DeLay said. "My definition of torture is you physically harm someone by cutting them, by cutting their fingers, sticking things in their eyes, sticking their fingers in electric sockets. Water boarding is a frightening experience. But the person does not have physical damage."
