Russ Feingold talks to Rachel about the need for Congressional oversight and holding the Bush administration accountable for what they've done regardless of what the Attorney General's office does. Although having an AG's office that will actually prosecute contempt charges definitely would be refreshing to say the least.

Feingold doesn't give much creedance to the statements made by Kit Bond that he got assurances from Eric Holder on torture prosecutions (or the lack thereof). And he discusses his proposal to amend the Constitution to require special elections when there are Senate vacancies. After our recent fiascos I agree with him. If had to name one Senator that I truly had any respect for, Feingold would be the first and one of the few to come to mind and he's earned it, as much as the Bush administration has earned my disrespect.
