Dodd To Hillary And Obama: Will You Make Good On Your Promise To Support My FISA Filibuster?

Dodd To Hillary And Obama: Will You Make Good On Your Promise To Support My FISA Filibuster?
By Greg Sargent - December 14, 2007, 2:31PM


This morning, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid announced on the Senate floor that the Senate FISA renewal bill containing immunity for the telecoms would go to the floor on Monday. The move, which many expected, dismayed opponents of telecom immunity.

Now the campaign of Senator Chris Dodd, who has promised to put a hold on and filibuster the bill, has just sent out an email to supporters containing a challenge for the other Dem Senators running for President: Will you stick by your promise to publicly support my filibuster of the bill?

Back when Dodd first announced his planned filibuster of the measure in October, the Dem Senators running for President came under heavy pressure to say they'd publicly support it. Senators Clinton, Obama and Biden all said they would.

Now the Dodd campaign is reaffirming that he is going to come back to D.C. and stage his filibuster -- and it's asking people to put a new round of pressure on the other Senators to stand with him. From the Dodd campaign's email from Dodd Internet guru Tim Tagaris:

Remember when this all started playing out? A lot of people rushed to send out strongly worded press releases about how committed they were to "supporting a filibuster."

They'll have a chance to show they are true to their word.

Call or email the Senators that pledged their opposition to this bill to support the Dodd Amendment and a filibuster if necessary. And ask them to be there with Dodd when it counts.

1. This is really bad for Reid to bring this to the floor for a vote... As if...
its not hard enough to fight the F***ing Republicans, but having to fight your own leadership as well... That sucks big time.

3. K&R. Cheers to Dodd for acting as the Opposition.
How frickin' hard can it be? Let's hope Hillary and Obama muster up the courage to make good on their promise to filibuster this POS bill.
