Torture/Imprisonment Debate [UPDATED]
Atrios is posting the statements of many Democrats on the torture bill. Some of them are quite lengthy, but they are worth reading if you have the time--you should know what our Senators are saying about this important issue.
Chris Dodd
Russ Feingold
Barack Obama (video)
John Kerry
Hillary Clinton
John Edwards

[UPDATE: The amendment to strike the anti-habeas corpus provision of the bill failed...51-48. Thanks for nothing, McCain, Graham and Warner. All Democrats except Ben Nelson (Nebraska) stood up against Bush's determination to hold the accused indefinitely and without charging them with a crime.]
