Default Interesting candidates poll on the executive power

Also interesting , is that some of the candidates (Rudy, Huckabee, Thompson)just flatly refused to answer it. To bad I haven't seen this 100 times in the last two days in the news..unlike Hilary's crying episode.

Here are some of the questionsuestion 1Does the president have inherent powers under the Constitution to conduct surveillance for national security purposes without judicial warrants, regardless of federal statutes?Question 2In what circumstances, if any, would the president have constitutional authority to bomb Iran without seeking a use-of-force authorization from Congress? (Specifically, what about the strategic bombing of suspected nuclear sites -- a situation that does not involve stopping an IMMINENT threat?)Question 3Does the Constitution empower the president to disregard a congressional statute limiting the deployment of troops -- either by capping the number of troops that may be deployed to a particular country or by setting minimum home-stays between deployments? In other words, is that level of deployment management beyond the constitutional power of Congress to regulate?Question 4Under what circumstances, if any, would you sign a bill into law but also issue a signing statement reserving a constitutional right to bypass the law?Question 5Does the Constitution permit a president to detain US citizens without charges as unlawful enemy combatants?Question 6Does executive privilege cover testimony or documents about decision-making within the executive branch not involving confidential advice communicated to the president himself?
