In addition to my quick hit today about John McCain, the NRO has been chasing after his campaign to ensure his support of immunity and a gutted FISA law and they're evidently pleased with the results:
McCain & FISA: Significant Developments and Opportunities [Andy McCarthy]
I'm grateful to McCain spokesman Doug Holtz-Eakin for his thoughtful answer to the questions on surveillance reform I posted last week.I've responded in an article on the homepage today. In my humble opinion, the McCain camp's response is extremely significant in that it not only full-throatedly supports the surveillance reform being blocked by House Democrats; it marks a welcome evolution on the Senator's thinking about executive power - bringing him more into line with prior administrations and influential federal court decisions which concede presidential power under Article II of the Constitution to order warrantless surveillance when the United States is threatened.
