The Senate is scheduled to vote Tuesday on President Bush's nomination to head the Department of Homeland Security. Chertoff is expected to easily win approval, but Democrats were able to force two days of debate on the nomination. They're upset that the Bush administration has refused to release a full copy of an e-mail detailing FBI concerns about interrogation techniques at Guantanamo.
