Very disappointed with Senator Schumer! The waterboarding issue is at the very heart of what Mr. Mukasey will do when he gets into power. Yes, he is not Alberto Gonzalez, at least for now. And that makes it even more pressing an issue for the DEMS to identify who Mr. Mukasey really is, and where his allegaince lies--to the country or to the President? A single question could take care of that. Now. Mr. Schumer and Ms. Feinstein have denied the whole country the ability to determine where Mr. Mukasey's allegiance lies.
