Don’t forget to vote! (Election Day)

Today is election day, it’s your duty to vote. Or if you are not an American to convince an American to vote. It doesn’t matter who you vote for – *cough* – as long as you vote for somebody.

Telecom Filibuster

with one comment

After the House approves overhaul of wiretap laws I was pointed to this article Obama Camp Says It: He’ll Support Filibuster Of Any Bill Containing Telecom Immunity. Apparently Obama (his campaign) had already said in October of 2007 that they would.

Sadly as I read in the NYT Senate Approves Bill to Broaden Wiretap Powers In fact “…on Wednesday, he [Obama] ended up voting for what he called ‘an improved but imperfect bill’ after backing a failed attempt earlier in the day to strip the immunity provision from the bill through an amendment.” Clinton voted against the bill.

And don’t forget to use tag your election posts too. (Tagging 2008)
