Feingold is coming closer - but still not there.
POTENTIAL 2008 Democratic presidential contender Senator Russ Feingold has made an early appeal to anti-war activists and set himself apart from possible rivals by calling for a pullout of US troops from Iraq by the end of next year.He voted against the war and the Patriot Act. If he starts calling for an immediate end - then I'll get a little more excited.
No other Democrat pondering a run for the White House, nor any of the party's congressional leaders or prominent foreign policy voices, has broken with Republican President George W. Bush and endorsed a timetable for Iraq withdrawal.
Coming closer than most, Russ - just a little more!
