While the GOP is self-destucting, not many Democrats have taken advantage by pushing the envelope further. Perhaps the one Democrat who has been exceptional is Senator Russ Feingold from Wisconsin. He was the one senator to question the Patriot Act shortly after 9/11. He has consistently pushed the idea that Republicans can't govern. Recently, he introduced a presidential censure resolution. This move was both brilliant and risky. Not only did he move his base, but he proved that there IS a Democrat out there who owns a nice pair of balls!
This past week, Senator Feingold went into hostile territory and appeared on Faux News! As much as that jerkoff Chris Wallace tried to pin Feingold into a defensive position, the senator maintained his message and looked very civil. You can see the video here.
Could it be that we're looking at our next president? I once thought McCain would be the most-likely person, but he's been messing around in wingnuttia. The Arizona senator has been moving to the right in almost every issue. He sure is looking like Joe Lieberman these days!
I now have a difficult choice for whom I will support in 2008. Will I support Al Gore (assuming he'll run, which he has negated)? Or will I support Russ "balls of steel" Feingold? We still have some years to go before this heats up. A note to Feingold: don't let Hilary get all the money! Start raising the funds now!
