    I just spoke to one of Webb's staffers.  She says he has written a letter to Reid supporting the Judiciary Committee version of FISA without the telecom immunity.  I asked him to support Sen. Dodd in the  filibuster, no word on whether he will.

      And was told the same thing.  I then stated that, if he was truly opposed to immunity, he should support Dodd's filibuster, because failure to support it was tantamount to letting the Intelligence Committee bill pass.  The staffer agreed to pass my comment along.

      Come on people -- if we put pressure on him, Webb will do the right thing.
