No-shows on Mukasey vote

From Christopher Floyd:
The only four Democratic senators who did not vote on the nomination of Mukasey – and the legitimization of torture and presidential tyranny it represents – were the four Democratic senators seeking the presidency.

Draw your own conclusions on the implications of these absences, and what they portend for the possibilities of genuine reform should any of these worthy paladins win the White House.
My conclusion: Sens. Biden, Dodd, Clinton and Obama were afraid. Of what they were afraid, I can't say for sure. But it was something so terrifying that they were willing to be derelict in their duty.

As for the possibilities of genuine reform, well, there will be no reform of government coming from either branch of the Government Party. The only thing I'm curious about is how a Democrat would use the abusive powers of USAPATRIOT as compared to how the Republicans have used them.
