How great is it to be John McCain in the year 2008? He rises from the dead politically, none of his rivals gets any traction with voters, the democrats are on the verge of tearing themselves to pieces and now, Nancy Pelosi and the other members of the White Flag party toss him a hanging curveball in the form of the FISA reauthorization. The details of this are unimportant. What is important is that FISA governs foreign intell wiretaps. Democrats have maintained that the only legal way for the president to do foreign intell taps is under FISA. Now it has expired. Rather than renew it, the House under the leadership of al-Pelosi has let it lapse, leaving the country with the hobson's choice of possibly violating the Constitution or just ignoring al qaeda and other terrorists. The fact that we have troops in harm's way and they depend on those taps for intell didn't seem to bother the White Flag party at all. A bigger priority for them is making sure trial lawyers can sue telecomm companies for assisting the government in anti-terror investigations. If McCain can't run with this, he really is the wrong candidate. It goes right into his national security wheelhouse. He can put this topic in the middle of the news for months. It is the one issue he dominates the democrats on in polls. Unfortunately, he has had nothing to say about it so far. If he wants to win, this is not the time to go Bob Dole on us. Wake up, Senator and lead.
