The Bingaman Amendment

On Monday the Senate will consider the “Bingaman Amendment,” a provision which would remove the habeas-stripping provision from the Graham Amendment adopted Thursday. Forty-nine Senators voted for the Graham amendment; a few were absent. The odds do not look at all good, even if one assumes that Sen. Wyden’s vote was tactical and that Sen. Olympia Snow is educable on this issue.

The folks at The Million Phone March are providing an interface by which US voters can contact their Senators. It can’t hurt.
