MORE POSITIVE ELECTION FALLOUT

Huffington Post links VIA Yahoo an AP story by Laurie Kellman:

“Warrantless wiretaps unlikely to be OK'd”

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061111/ap_on_go_co/warrantless_wiretaps

Very good news; precisely the sort of thing I hoped would follow a change of the guard.

It’s not the power; it’s not the wielder… It’s the lack of oversight, aggravated by the autocratic assertion oversight is unnecessary or even unconstitutional during times of war.

This is too much power for any man to wield outside of checks and balances – and its offensive that the president should ask for it.

Well, he asked for it… Now he’s really gonna get it – on this and a lot of other issues.

Get it?
