Bush runs out of time

Bush desperately needs retroactive legality for the illegal phone surveillance he's already done. Since he's unlikely to get any relief from a Democrat controlled Senate, he's going to want the lame duck Senate to bail him out.

If Democrats really want to they can filibuster this grotesque piece of self serving abuse of the constitution out of existence. Lots of commentators telling them they should 'moderate' - basically by accommodating the President in any way they can. Going on Democrat's behavior in recent years, it's not totally beyond belief. It just depends how accommodating they are feeling.

Senator Chuck Rangel just indicated he'd like Dick Cheney's current house office thank you very much.
