Why Feingold is uniquely qualified to end the Iraq War.

In order to end the war in Iraq, we need to work with the Iraqi people as partners to create a vision in which everybody --- Shiites, Sunnis, Kurds, and other minorities -- can share. We need to create a culture of openness and participation in which ordinary Iraqis feel like they have a stake in the future of Iraq instead of the current situation in which they live constantly in fear of arrest or instant death. This is why I support Russ Feingold for President -- he is uniquely qualified to work across boundaries and bring people into the process. As President, he would engage in the same kind of crusade to maximize participation in Iraq that he has already through his campaign finance reform proposals and his refusal to accept huge campaign contributions at a time when everybody else was. Feingold understands how democracy ought to work as much as anybody -- after all, he was the only Senator to vote against the Patriot Act. He would apply this kind of understanding to the Iraqi conflict as well.

Feingold is a true patriot
Senator Russ Feingold is one the few representatives we have in this country that we can all be proud of. He truly is his own man.

The last I knew he was the only senator that had fully read what the Patriot Act says and knows how dangerous this bill is. The current administration in Washington is the most dangerous thing we as Americans face in this country.

It is a real shame what has happened in country in five short years. We need more people like Russ Feingold. A true patriot.
