    It's always a treat to have you post on the Daily Kos, Sen. Durbin.

    My questions deal with a closely related issue -- voting reform.  Is there any chance that you and Sen. Reid will bring the Count Every Vote Act (S.804) bill to the floor?  More to the point, when are we going to address felony voter-disenfranchisement (i.e., the Reid amendment in 2002 restoring federal voting rights to ex-felons who have completely served their sentences that you supported) and Election Day Holiday, both which the Clinton bill addresses?

    Heck, why not add Sen. Obama's bill to "prohibit deceptive election processes" (S.453) to the mix?

      I guess you need a link to the 2002 Reid voting rights amendment you supported.

      Thanks, so much, for posting, Sen. Durbin.
