But it's not all bad news...

I was pleased to see that 90% of the Senate believes torture is bad.

Bush, of course, threatens a veto; since he's never vetoed anything, it's hard to take the threat seriously. (Someone must have told him once that using the veto was a 'sign of weakness'.)

I'm breathlessly awaiting word - will he exercise this use of Presidential Power for the first time ever to save his precious torture prerogative? You know he's going to hate to lose it...

Alternate History speculation - if this bill had come up two-three months ago, do you think the Pro-Torture faction would have been larger than the nine 'no' votes that remain today?
