Feingold: A Rising Star?
Senator Russ Feingold (D-Wisconsin) is stoking up an effort to increase his national visibility as a prelude to launching his White House bid, and here’s a few of his talking points:
“ONLY senator to vote NO on the USA PATRIOT ACT
“voted NO on the War in Iraq
“ONLY senator to call for withdrawal by 12/2006
“Pro 2nd Amendment
“Co-Author of McCain-Feingold (Campaign Finance Reform Act)”
Four out of five on my libertarian-ometer ain’t bad. Libertarian Democrats — An Idea Whose Time Has Come? Let’s wait and see, but the signs are encouraging.
UPDATE: “Four out of five”? Duh-uh! Okay, so I’m not quite focused this morning…..
