Feingold speaks in Washington, blisters both parties
http://www.jsonline.com/news/statepolitics/119817439.ht...


<snip>

Washington - Making his first speech in Washington, D.C., since he left the Senate, Russ Feingold on Wednesday chastised Democrats for failing to protect civil liberties and Republicans for going after workers' bargaining rights.

Feingold was in Washington to receive the Ridenhour Courage Prize, an award honoring progressive figures and causes that has gone in the past to Daniel Ellsberg, Seymour Hersh, former President Jimmy Carter and Gloria Steinem.

He said at the awards ceremony that the White House was "flat-out wrong" in its recent decision to try suspects in the Sept. 11 attacks before a military commission instead of a civilian court.

3. I would also - and would cast a write-in, but
that whole "i"-before-"e" thing has always baffled me.

4. Me too. You can trust him to take stands for what's right.
He's one of the few people whose campaign I would give money and time to.

17. You're supposed to leave when you lose your seat.
Why you are characterizing that as cowardice is beyond me.
