At the hearing yes some fireworks about NSA phone banking.Hayden will invoke 9-11 OVER and OVER again.He will be confirmed at the end of the hearings.Democrats don't have the votes in the Senate to block it.But you see Republican make a 06 issue out of it just like Carl Rove told us they will do.Get ready for Rove talking points being said everyday until Hayden's confirmed.
