FINALLY, A PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE I CAN GET BEHIND:

Does the president have inherent powers under the Constitution to conduct surveillance for national security purposes without judicial warrants, regardless of federal statutes?

The Supreme Court has never held that the president has such powers. As president, I will follow existing law, and when it comes to U.S. citizens and residents, I will only authorize surveillance for national security purposes consistent with FISA and other federal statutes.

Too bad President Obama doesn’t think this way. You know, the way Senator Obama did, in 2007.
