Candidates taking a stand against torture

It seems the good folks at the American Freedom Campaign have taken it upon themselves to send a pledge to all the presidential candidates stating:
“We are Americans, and in our America we do not torture, we do not imprison people without charge or legal remedy, we do not tap people’s phones and emails without a court order, and above all we do not give any President unchecked power.

"I pledge to fight to protect and defend the Constitution from assault by any President."
This is an important, the Constiution should be the law, and as you may well know, all civil servants swear an oath to uphold the Constitution. The fact that the Bush Administration has violated this oath repeatedly should be grounds for impeachment, but thanks to the acquiescence of congress and the "liberal" media, it will take nothing short of a blowjob to remove this dictator. So the question is, which candidates pledging to support the Constitution?

Senator Joe Biden (D-DE)
Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY)
Senator Chris Dodd (D-CT)
Senator John Edwards (D-NC)
Senator Mike Gravel (D-AK)
Representative Dennis Kucinich (D-OH)
Senator Barack Obama (D-IL)
Governor Bill Richardson (D-NM)

Not one Republican candidate has signed, but to be fair one Republican candidate has signed a similar pledge from American Freedom Agenda. That candidate is the only Republican running who isn't a frothing at the mouth fascist: Ron Paul.
