    Feingold was one of 5 senators to vote against the atrocious 1996 Telecommunications act, which has basically let Clearchannel rape our radio air waves. (the other senators were McCain, Wellstone, Dorgan..and i forget the last one). Feingold is now leading the effort to overturn a lot of the radio deregulation rules and spoke at the media reform conference i went to in Madison. he's a very eloquent, funny, intelligent speaker. i hope he runs for president someday.

      There was talk of him running this time, but I don't know how seriously he himself considered it.

        I think at least two-third of Wellstone's reasons applies to him.  I read a story once that a report kept asking Paul Wellstone why he won't run for President.  He said (as best as I remember), "I am short, I am a liberal, and I am a Jew."

        I don't know how tall Feingold is.

        He considered running in 2004 but apparently decided against it. On the other hand he is only a bit more than 50 so there is plenty of time for him to run again.

        Put your money where your mouth is.

      I would also love to seem him run for president, but at the same time, we need him in the senate. He's seems to be one of few Senators that still have principles.
