Senate Vote On Gonzales
Today's big news is the vote on Alberto Gonzales, and it certainly can be argued Governor Dean can't get down to Washington fast enough.

38 Democrats did vote against Gonzales and associating the U.S. with torture, including our own Senators Clinton and Schumer along with Vermont's Leahy and Jeffords -- and let's give them all a real huzzah! But just enough strayed to make a filibuster impossible, most eregiously neighboring Senator Joe Lieberman of Conn., who was kissed by George Bush after the SOTU speech Wednesday. This was despite Senator Kennedy's incredible speech on the floor Tuesday attacking the Gonzales nomination: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2005/2/2/103725/1689 That was a speech that will surely go down in history as one of the Senate's highest orations.

It might be good to drop our local senators a brief email line thanking them for their vote, and encouraging them to resist again in the future, for they surely will have to.
