Feingold Setting Himself for 2008 Presidential Bid
Senator Russ Feingold from Wisconsin, the only Senator to vote against the Patriot Act when it was first introduced, is about to make a bold political move by submitting a resolution censuring President Bush. The wingnuts have tried to make Bush's illegal domestic spying program seem legal, but the American public isn't buying it. Thankfully, Senator Feingold has taken the initiative to make Bush accountable for the illegal spying.
What? Someone is holding Bush accountable? I could hear the right's boo's already! While such a resolution will simply scold Dubya, it has greater implications. The most visible one is Feingold's positioning himself for a 2008 Presidential race. I'm liking this guy more everyday. He's got some balls, something that has not been seen in the Democratic Party very much!
In light of this, it would be great if we could have a presidential straw poll. To do this, I'll need everyone to post a comment with politicians they think should run. I already know Hilary Clinton, Feingold, Clark, Daschle, and Gore are possibilities, but please include anyone else you would like to see take a shot. Once we gather enough names, we'll conduct a straw poll. Good Day!
