Reid to give telcoms Reach Around - Ignores Dodd's Hold on FISA legislation

From Time's Karen Tumulty:
Senator Dodd's campaign communications director Hari Sevugan tells me that $150,000 in small contributions have poured into Dodd's campaign in the past 24 hours . . . . Dodd has raised more small-dollar contributions in the last 24 hours than he did in the previous month. Sevugan also says the number of visits to his website is up tenfold, as is the number of people registering their e-mail addresses there.

All that, from a single announcement to place a "hold" on this bill. Consider the passion that could be generated, the energy that could be harnessed, from sustained and principled leadership.

Hattip to Glenn Greenwald and his worthy post:
Harry Reid works to ensure telecom amnesty, warrantless surveillance
...good read.

And, If you are moved to join the support of Chris Dodd on this issue... here's the linkee!
