79. Feingold voted against the resolution on going into Iraq
Feingold's EXPERIENCE in the government gave him the EXPERTISE to make an informed decision. The Executive Branch of Government shouldn't be for on the job training, as Bush has so horribly shown us.

I question a person's motives and integrity that thinks that after not even a full term as Senator, they are qualified to run for the "leader of the free world" (so to speak). That requires a HUGE EGO, especially after voting and then backing up his vote during the Presidential Primary debates for the Iraq War in 04'.

I even knew that going into Iraq was opening a Pandora's Box, and I knew back in 2002, when they started beating the war drums. I am just a lowly civilian listening to the news and trying to understand our Nation's policies and actions from my home. I don't have any inside information, I am not a "brilliant" attorney, I am not a great person working for the common man and my father wasn't a mill worker.

I cannot support any candidate that supports a war that murdered thousands of innocent "everyday" men, women and children, not talking about the thousands of permanently maimed for no good reason. Iraq isn't one issue, it is many issues, Human Rights, Economy issues, Accountability Issues, Foreign Policy issues, Dept of Defense issues, Prisoner of War issues...... If Edwards, was fooled back then, then shame on the brilliant fighting for the common man him, and if he STILL supported his vote in 2004 (which he did), then he isn't Presidential or VP material. PERIOD
