Political Forecast: Restore habeas corpus!

Excerpted from this post at Political Forecast

Sen. Chris Dodd of Connecticut gave what many consider to be a
barn-burner of a speech on Sunday at the 30th Annual Harkin Steak Fry,
and from my seat close to the stage on the press riser I'd have to
agree. One of the most riveting moments was when Sen. Dodd called for
the restoration of habeas corpus. You can watch the video of his
speech at the bottom of this post, but we've got one more pressing
issue right now. We've got to restore habeas corpus, and Sen. Dodd and
Sen. Patrick Leahy are taking the charge at Restore-Habeas.org. Matt
Browner-Hamlin has got the lowdown on the effort here at Bleeding
Heartland, with video from Sen. Dodd... If you're an Iowan, make sure to
put the pressure on Sen. Chuck Grassley. He's indicated he's a 'Maybe'
vote but that isn't good enough.
