AlaskaÃ¢â¬â¢s Stevens Left Out in the Cold
Senator Ted Stevens boasted this summer that he had nearly all the 60 Senate votes he needed to muscle his massive telecommunications bill through Congress by the end of the year. But as his fellow lawmakers called it quits this weekend, his quest to overhaul AmericaÃ¢â¬â¢s telecom laws ended in failure.

Some doubted that a rowdy coalition fighting for such a nebulous cause as net neutrality could shut down a bill backed by Stevens, the powerful chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee.
Ã¢â¬ÅThis is a huge victory for real people and a clear signal to the next Congress that standing up for big bold ideas is a winning political proposition,Ã¢â¬Â declared Eli Pariser, executive director of MoveOn.org Civic Action, a member of Ã¢â¬ÅSave the InternetÃ¢â¬Â group that campaigned to sink the bill
But if his crowd is serious, it will have to do more than block legislation Ã¢â¬â it will have to get laws passed requiring net neutrality in the next Congress. That will be a great deal more difficult than thwarting Ted Stevens.
