Things Looking Up?

I hadn't planned to write anything more about FISA, but earlier today, Chris Dodd and Russ Feingold announced:

We will oppose efforts to end debate on this bill as long as it provides retroactive immunity for the telecommunications companies that may have participated in the President’s warrantless wiretapping program, and as long as it fails to protect the privacy of law-abiding Americans.

In plainer language, that appears to mean filibuster. The Huffington Post reports that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has also announced that he'll vote against the bill. Is there a little bit of reassurance we can get from that? Susan Duclos at says it won't and explains why. What do you think?
