Interesting article in today's Chicago Trib online about an election which is a long, long way off, about the possibility of a Feingold run for office in 2008.
In Wisconsin, while John Kerry barely eked out a win in one of the most hotly contested battleground states, voters were giving Feingold a near-landslide victory, electing him to a third term with 55 percent of the vote. Unlike Kerry, who tried to play it safe from start to finish, Feingold won big after voting against the Iraq war and Bush's tax cuts, and having cast the lone vote in the Senate against the Patriot Act.... ...Some senators--poor John Kerry comes to mind--after years in the Senate speak in a language that only other senators think of as normal. But Feingold, perhaps because he meets with real people so often, is plain-spoken and concise. In La Crosse regarding terrorism: "It's the top priority. They're trying to kill us and our children." In Blanchardville on trade and jobs: "Trade policies are selling people down the river." In Coon Valley on the deficit: "I'm in the lead to stop them from writing out blank checks."Chicago Tribune | Edwards? Clinton? Nah, 2008 could be Russ Feingold's year
