Clinton, Obama Keep Mum on Telecom Immunity

TennViews tells it like it is on limited Democratic opposition to giving rich telecommunications corporations special rights and privileges in the justice system:
...John Edwards calling for support of Chris Dodd's filibuster on retroactive immunity for telephone companies who spied on you. it was against the law, against the Constitution, and against the American people.

Hillary? Obama?

Will this election be about who will most fight for the American People, or about who will support Corporations breaking the law?
Note to frontrunners: opposing telecom immunity is progressive.

UPDATE: A number of Senate Democrats voted for telecom immunity and against progress today. Here is the hiss list:
Sens. Evan Bayh (D-IN) [has been mentioned as a possible VP candidate], Tom Carper (D-DE), Daniel Inouye (D-HI), Tim Johnson (D-SD), Mary Landrieu (D-LA), Claire McCaskill (D-MO), Barbara Mikulski (D-MD), Bill Nelson (D-FL), Ben Nelson (D-NE), Mark Pryor (D-AR), Jay Rockefeller (D-WV), and Ken Salazar (D-CO).
Congressional Democrats deserve approval ratings lower than George W. Bush.
