  •  Feingold? Meh... (0+ / 0-)

    I understand that what follows will not be popular at this site, but I want to point out two things that everyone should keep in mind before launching a 'draft Russ' movement. First, as far as I know, he made just a single visit to the state capitol during the days of rage-- he marched with the fire fighters around the square-- but did not take the opportunity to address the assembled crowds. Second, he ran a surprisingly half-hearted campaign for reelection in '10 and lost decisively to an empty suit tea party candidate.

    Neither fact suggests that Feingold is interested in another campaign or office, nor that he could win a race if he were.

    •  Mark Pocan for Governor (0+ / 0-)

      I know it would never happen, not now, at least, because he's too far left for many Wisconsinites, and they'd need to ditch their ridic homophobia, but Assemblyman Mark Pocan has integrity AND he's tough. He's not afraid to fight for us. As governor, he'd be his generation's Tony Earl.
