Feingold Not Happy with Centrists' Deal

Daily Kos: "This is not a good deal for the U.S. Senate or for the American people. Democrats should have stood together firmly against the bullying tactics of the Republican leadership abusing their power as they control both houses of Congress and the White House. Confirming unacceptable judicial nominations is simply a green light for the Bush administration to send more nominees who lack the judicial temperament or record to serve in these lifetime positions. I value the many traditions of the Senate, including the tradition of bipartisanship to forge consensus. I do not, however, value threatening to disregard an important Senate tradition, like occasional unlimited debate, when necessary. I respect all my colleagues very much who thought to end this playground squabble over judges, but I am disappointed in this deal."

I only saw
an article
telling about his
questioning the Attorny
General he won me over. He was so strong and
certain
about what he was doing. I would be most interested to know what he would do to
bring back
our Democracy,
I would have a better idea
if where he is at, and
how I would feel about
him. Surely
better than
my first introduction to him.
