Balancing Act by Democrats at Hearing

But the senator's warning might well have applied to the Democrats, who themselves could pay a large price — though a political one — if they do not strike the right tone in the debate over the National Security Agency's domestic eavesdropping program.

A president orders a wiretapping program. This wiretapping program appears to be contrary to specific written law. The administration claims a legal right outside of that written law. Senate hearings. Constitional issues. National security. An historic question of how our government is balanced, and how the law applies to the Executive branch.

You know what this calls for? A horse race article!

Tell me about how this issue might, could, possibly affect the political fortunes of the minority party!

No, wait. Don't tell me that. Tell me instead, what the fuck is the point of this article. Seriously. I want to know.
