One Man Stood Tall

On Monday, Senator Chris Dodd simply and forcefully showed what one principled man can do in America. Just when the rest of the Democratic Party was on the verge of another collapse to George W. Bush, Dodd stepped in to stop the cave-in.

He had left the campaign trail late Sunday night, with only weeks to go until the Iowa caucus, to push for the removal of the immunity provision from a larger bill that Congress is considering on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

I believe Dodd believed that one person could make a difference – and he did. And despite the fact that his Majority Leader sided with the Bush administration and none of the Democratic leading candidates for president showed up (Clinton, Obama, and Sen. Joe Biden did not leave the campaign trail to assist in Dodd’s effort)Senator Dodd pressed on anyway. And won!
