    which Democrats rushed to pass, as quickly as Republicans.  And the President, who was in the Senate at the time, was one of that heinous law's most ardent supporters.

      Democratic candidates, even of they voted for FISA/Patriot Act in the past, need to own up to the errors of these laws and assure voters they will work to rein in the abuses.

      I agree with you about campaigning on job creation, education, immigration and the environment. Those are all issues that are at the top of voters' concerns.

        that about half of Congressional Democrats understand the politics of it, but don't actually believe it.  They talk the talk at election time, but they don't walk the walk, and that's extremely telling.
