Will Any Democrats Step Up?

Republican strategy seems to be that voters will prefer it if the GOP adopts a pro-torture policy. Last week it was tragic to see principled GOP opposition to torture collapse.

But what about Democratic senators? It was all very well to sit back and enjoy some supposed electoral advantage from an internal Republican fight, but now it is their turn to step up. Oboma, Kennedy, Kerry, Clinton, Schumer, Boxer, Feinggold and co, where are you?

There is a limited amount of time before the elections. There would be no way to overcome a filibuster. Or are some Democrats in favor of torture also?
