Congress made a mistake of historical proportions when it suspended habeas rights a few years ago -- and unfortunately Senate Republicans made another mistake yesterday by mounting a filibuster and failing to allow us to restore it. The good news is we've picked up 8 more votes since the Senate voted to suspend habeas corpus last fall, but we still need 4 more Senators to reach a filibuster-proof 60 vote margin.
Four more Senators? I vote:
Senator Warner (not that one)
Senator Allen (not that one either)
And that's just to start.
[update]Oops. Sen. Sununu actually voted for the restoration of Habeas, and the Webb amendment. He must be quite frightened at his prospects in 2008. So let's add Senator McWherter just to even things out.
