Reasons to not vote for Obama: Voted to legitimize domestic spying

Just in case you thought I was a Democrat, here is a reason to not vote for Barack Obama:
Obama joins Senate vote to legitimize Bush’s domestic spying operation
The Democratic Party’s presumptive presidential nominee voted Wednesday afternoon with a majority of the US Senate to pass legislation vastly expanding the government’s power to carry out warrantless wiretapping and electronic surveillance, while handing blanket retroactive immunity to telecommunications companies that facilitated the illegal domestic spying operation in the US in the six years following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
