  1. Richard – I completely agree. I’ve been admiring Feingold for some time – and I think anyone who thinks Hillary is electable is dillusional. She will inspire a LOT of negative activity on the right. Let alone her pandering on ridiculous topics like video games to try to show she is no leftist.

    The sad thing is the passion she inspires from people on the left who do admire her – but I personally think she is insincere…

  2. If Hillary is the Dems choice in 08 they will lose. Every bigot that voted against homosexuality will turn out to vote against a woman for president.

  3. The key national site promoting a Feingold candidacy is now RussForPresident.com — the Draft Russ site you linked is basically defunct.

  4. I would like to add my comments to your very refreshing statements about both Sen. Feingold and AIPAC.

    I listened to Mr. Feingold once again this morning on “Meet the Press.” As usual, he did not disappoint in that he comes across as an honest, intelligent, insightful individual.

    Frankly, I was a bit concerned about his stance vis a vis the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. I am looking for a candidate who takes an objective view and is willing to pressure both sides to reach a resolution to this never-ending saga, as opposed to one who blindly follows AIPAC’s demands (Lieberman).

    Given that the humiliation of Palestinians by Israelis is viewed by Arabs/Muslims as the humiliation of them all, it is imperative that a viable Palestinian state be established ASAP. Such a step would be in the best interests of all concerned, including the U.S.

    Unfortunately, Bushites have turned a deaf ear to this conflict and allowed Sharon, and now Olmert, to do as they please, thereby further alienating the Arab/Muslim world.

    Since Jerusalem will have to become part of the equation, I would suggest Israelis declare it an OPEN CITY where all great religions converge. Christians, Jews and Muslims would be INVITED to participate in its governance, a gesture that would be globally embraced.

    Rather than hide behind a wall, Israelis would become an integral part of the world community and, by cooperating with Palestinians, would soon transform both nations into a flourishing region.


  5. Eva: Thanks for yr comment. I too envision a Middle East in which cooperating States of Israel & Palestine could be a joint powerhouse in any number of fields including technology and agriculture. But that day may be some time off I’m sorry to say.
