After ten years in the House of Representatives and six as a U.S. Senator, Mark Udall would prefer to go out known as a champion of individual liberty and the environment, rather than the faltering "Senator Uterus" who one-noted his re-election campaign and badly underestimated the Republican who unseated him, Cory Gardner. And pressure is mounting, in the waning hours before Gardner takes the oath of office tomorrow, for Udall to make a bold move to secure that legacy.

Bush administration's use of extreme measures -- okay, torture -- in its global war on terror.
