CRAAAAAZY Left wing nuts...

...want the following people to be the Democratic nominee.

Feingold 32%
Clark 23%
Warner 11%

These top three in the daily kos poll don't strike me as radical left-wingers. Warner, the most centrist of the bunch, was in single digits this summer.

UPDATE II- Clark gets major props today for his speech on Monday.

"And as for the partisan charge that Democrats are living in a pre-9/11 world, let us be very clear: the policies followed by this Administration since 9/11 - the belligerent tone, the unilateralism, the excessive reliance on military force are not making us safer; they are increasing the dangers we face abroad and distracting us from the most important challenges here at home."

UPDATE - Feingold gets major props today for his questioning of Alberto Gonzales during his confirmation hearing.

In a letter to the attorney general yesterday, Feingold demanded to know why Gonzales dismissed the senator's question about warrantless eavesdropping as a "hypothetical situation" during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in January 2005. At the hearing, Feingold asked Gonzales where the president's authority ends and whether Gonzales believed the president could, for example, act in contravention of existing criminal laws and spy on U.S. citizens without a warrant.

Gonzales said that it was impossible to answer such a hypothetical question but that it was "not the policy or the agenda of this president" to authorize actions that conflict with existing law. He added that he would hope to alert Congress if the president ever chose to authorize warrantless surveillance, according to a transcript of the hearing.


For republicans "hypothetical" means "we have not been caught doing that yet".

Comments:
Russ Feingold is the most freethinking man in Washington. His conscience is very liberal, but he is also one of the most fairly minded and bipartisan people in the Senate. He'll make a great president.

Nice blog -- keep it up!
 
A divorced, progressive, Jewish, sitting Senator from a northern state. Man, that's a lot of ground to break all at once. No way.
 
Well, he wouldn't be the first divorced president. That honor goes to Mr. Family Values.
 
Ronald Reagan was a ground breaker. He was also the first POTUS to wear contacts.
 
Okay, an unmarried, Jewish, progressive sitting Senator from a northern state. Lots of ground to cover.
 
Who gives a flying F++K about all of the above...???

If you GOPers can live with a reformed coke snortin' drunk........

So a man is divorced...Jewish....
he is a sensible man with great ideas. Period.
It doesn't hurt that he is good on his feet (unlike Kerry the sleepwalker) and that he is above reproach (unlike Mrs. Clinton).

He doesn't have the freshman problem of Edwards (will he ever grow up? - don't forget he lost the debate with Cheney) and he doesn't have the baggage of Clark (sensible and straightforward but a former GOPer).
 
I'm not saying these things disqualify him from being President in my mind (his politics do that), it's that these have typically been mountains to overcome for a Presidential candidate. Hillary Clinton has a lot of the same mountains to climb; female, sitting senator, from the Northeast, etc.
 
With a good platform, there are few places Dems can't win. Esepcially after three more years of the Right's culture wars leaves more uninsured and in debt. If a candidate could promise government that actually helps people rather than ignores them, we could win. And, while Feingold is from the north, and no northern Dem has won since JFK, he has the advantage over Clinton. Wisconsin is not New York, and more people are likely to see a Wisconsin senator as understanding of their lives than a New Yorker.
