THE SOUNDS OF silence. “Hillary Clinton. Has she said anything about the current domestic surveillance controversy?”
UPDATE: Mickey Kaus:
One reason the warrantless eavesdropping controversy may help, rather than hurt, Bush in the polls has more to do with the character of his administration than popular support for eavesdropping. . . . if the Bushies have really had the energy to secretly do all sorts of illegal spying against terrorists, it’s almost reassuring. At least they’ve been on the case, doing their job as they see it. The more thorough and secret the eavesdropping, the more reassuring on this score.
Maybe Hillary has figured this out.
