  •  Last time we nominated a senator..... (none)
    What astonishes me is that so many people just haven't learned anything from history.  The best person to run for president is just about always a governor.  How successful have senators been?  As much as I like Feingold, he'll never have a chance in a general election.
    •  Senators lose because they talk in Senatorese (none)
      They take both sides of every issue and are so nuanced that they vote for things before they vote against them.  Feingold is his own man, is plain spoken, and does not try to thread the needle in his voting pattern.
