A true servant of the nation and defender of the constitution
The Honorable Russell Feingold has sadly decided not to run for President of the United States in 2008. Of the people mentioned as possible (or declared) candidates for President, I think it's fairly straightforward to argue that Feingold would have made a much better President for the people of the United States than virtually any other currently declared candidate. However, his ability to win either the primaries or the general election as a little known Senator from Wisconsin, however populist he is. So, I applaud his decision to use his time to advance progressive policy and aggressive governmental oversight as a leading progressive voice in the majority party in the US Senate for the next two years Senator. His voice will be dearly missed in the campaign but his efforts in the Senate will hopefully help guide our nation to better tomorrows.
