The Senate, again caving in to the White House, passed an amendment to end the debate in giving the telecommunication industry immunity and giving the administration broad new powers to eavesdrop.

Talk about a turnaround, a vote later today will give the Senate’s stamp of approval on everything President Bush wanted. The vote was 69-29 with Clinton and Graham not voting.

This will not work out well with the House. According to The New York Times:

“The House has already rejected the idea of immunity for the phone companies, and Democratic leaders reacted angrily to the Senate vote. But Congressional officials said it appeared that the House would ultimately be forced to accept some sort of legal protection for the phone carriers in negotiations between the two chambers this week.”
