  •  Another absurd comparison. (none)
    Getting a divorce is not the equivalent of the President of the United States lying to Congress.  And that was the problem Russ had with Clinton.  Not the extra-marital issue.

    He's managed to get elected in WI on several occassions now, so don't be so sure he can't make a good run for the White House.

    •  Still a hyprocrite (1.44)
      The whole Clinton affair - the Jones lawsuit and the impeachment - was all just a republican political attack.  Sure, Clinton should not have lied, but he should never have been asked in the first place.  It was none of anyone's business.  And the lie was about an extra-marital affair.
      Most Democrats figured this out, and all but one voted to dismiss it as soon as it came up.  Our boy scout / hall monitor from Wisconsin didn't, and took the opportunity to grandstand. Well, you know what?  Fuck him.  Lets put him under oath to talk about the details of his divorces.  

      It takes a second to wreck it. It takes time to build.

      •  Being in America,,,,, (none)
        I will not argue with you any further, as you have an American right to be wrong.  Carry on.

      •  The 1's are uncalled for... (none)
        ...Lando has a point, although he is guilty of being too blunt.  

        Russ was my senator, and I love the guy.  But... despite the humor, there is a real rigidity about the guy.  He also backed the Roberts nomination, as I recall, because of a quaint notion that a President deserves to put whoever he wants in office as long as the person is "qualified", and ideology doesn't matter. Now I know Roberts was going to be confirmed regardless.  But there is a schoolmarm attitude about Feingold.  That's a slight negative.  His biggest strength - an unwillingness to compromise on matters of principle - can also be a weakness.  

        That said, I would pick him as the nominee over Kerry in a heartbeat.  

        •  I like Feingold (none)
          I actually did Lit drops for Feingold last year as part of some  volunteering I did for a Wisconsin house candidate.

          He may call his bad votes principled, but they are still bad votes.  His vote not to dismiss the impeachment gave bipartisan cover to a purely partisan action.   There was no principle anywhere in that fiasco.  

          It takes a second to wreck it. It takes time to build.
