He speaks in New Hampshire
:Sen. Russ Feingold told party faithful here yesterday that Democrats must shake their "timid" image and could best demonstrate they have a backbone by joining his call to censure President Bush.
If Democrats fail to stand up for what they believe in, it won't matter if they win back control of Congress, Mr. Feingold said, noting that the party held the majority when the Senate approved the Iraq war and passed the USA Patriot Act.
The interesting thing is that despite being the darling of the Netkooks, he's not getting any respect at all from the punters at Tradesports
, where his candidacy is seen as a decided longshot. His nomination is currently priced at 2.1 bid, 3.1 ask, ranking him seventh to Hillary, Warner, Gore, Edwards, Kerry and Biden. When I pointed this out a couple of months ago, one of the liberal bloggers said that he was going to put some money on Feingold since his shares seemed undervalued. Let's hope he didn't do it, because Feingold preferred was running at about 5.0 back then.
