If anything is to be done to stop Bush's abuses, it will be figures such as Spector who will do it. The fact is that no Dems or group of Dems are able to do one thing about anything.

Republican control is so complete that the only hope lies in moderate Republicans such as Spector, who even though under party pressure, can't stomach the blatant abuses of this administration.

I'm glad you noted this important story.
