  •  Rephrase: How can we get the Democrats (none)
    to nominate him? I think once he, or someone with the common sense, SOBness, truthtelling aura of Feignhold is nominated, the Democrats have a chance.
    •  Masel thinks he'll win Iowa (none)
      That would keep his odds alive into Round 2, although I doubt the media would treat his as anything more than a novelty candidacy, and that's a bigger curse than poor visibility.

      People in other states -- particularly battleground states for the primary -- might want to discreetly quote him in letters to the editor wherever possible. Beyond that, idunno. He's got a great profile, but it wants raising outside of the Upper Midwest.

    •  Wouldn't it be funny (none)
      if McCain ran against Feingold in the general? ;)
      •  Ugh. (none)
        Hate to say it, but I reckon he'd eat Feingold alive. Feingold, remember, is better-known as his enthusiastic if somewhat green young sidekick -- Robin to his Batman. Besides which he'll have the slime machine on his side, and Feingold would have only Wisconsin Nice and Daily Kos.

        I'm not sure how the Feingold brand would weather a Rudy challenge, either (again, you've got the tough, grim realist against the nice guy who feels your pain). Against any of the plastic bastards -- Frist, etc. -- he'd mop up.

        •  Don't forget that McCain would have the (none)
          Keating Five on his side. That should help him lots, don'tcha think?

          Seriously, encountered McCain once about a dozen years ago; he's a total sleazeball, lies through his teeth when it suits. Wonder if that can be used to stop him?

      •  McCain can't win a republican primary (none)
        because both the fundies and the greed wing of the republicans hate him.

        He also has been more supportive of the war than he should have been and that is not where the political zietgiest is heading.

        Stop the war! Draft Bush voters!
