I know of no evidence that the American public is happy to be spied upon
secretly. If anything, the non "political junkie" American public knows little
or nothing about the FISA bill, so the idea that this is a concession to public
opinion seems completely off base. I doubt this issue is in the top 20 of issues
that concern the public.
If Obama were inclined to make concessions to American public opinion, he might
actually be for a rapid withdrawal from Iraq (or any withdrawal, for that
matter). He might support impeachment, which is supported by a majority of the
Obama's concessions are made to the ruling class (to the extent that he actually
is making concessions, as opposed to people coming to understand what he has
stood for all along, as in Iraq).
