The Feingold resolution to censure Bush over illegal wiretapping is the single most important measure of qualification for 2008 Democratic Presidential candidates. The measure is incredibly mild. Democratic Senators should be calling for impeachment hearings for Bush and Cheney based on this issue. The failure of all other Democratic Senators to support the Feingold censure resolution completely disqualifies them to represent Democrats in the 2008 Presidential election in the opinion of Democratic Talk Radio.
A significant minority of Senate Democrats are routinely supporting the worst of Republican political positions. The few who voted in favor of the Alito Supreme Court nomination did serious disservice to America. The large number who scuttled the Alito filibuster attempt deserves to be condemned. The Senate Democrats who voted to renew the falsely named Patriot Act are shamed forever.
Senate Democrats who support Bush on Iraq, tax cuts for the wealthy, unfair bankruptcy tightening laws, Right Wing judicial nominations, trade agreements, etc. are not representing the majority views of Democratic voters. These Senate Democrats are doing a "Zell Miller-lite " politically to the disgust of Democrats everywhere. Democratic voters want leadership like that of Feingold from our representatives in the US Senate.
Senators Clinton, Edwards, Biden and Kerry do not deserve Democratic votes in either the Democratic Presidential Primaries or the 2008 General Election unless they quickly offer their public support for the Feingold censure resolution. Democratic Talk Radio will not support ant Presidential candidate who fails to at least support censure. We are actually looking for a Democratic Presidential candidate who supports impeachment hearings against Bush and Cheney.
Senate Democrats clearly demonstrated their lack of courage after Al Gore gave his excellent speech condemning the excesses of the Bush Administration and defending American Constitutional protections. See: Al Gore: American Hero Speech Defending Constitutional Government http://www.democratictalkradio.com/wordpress/?p=9 . They should have rallied to support Gore 's positions immediately. They failed completely!
Democrats want the kind of leadership displayed by former Vice President Al Gore, DNC Chairman Howard Dean and Senator Russ Feingold. We do not wimps leading our Party or representing us in government! We are not afraid of a good fight with the forces of Bush Republicanism.
Senator Feingold has immediately become the Democrat to beat in the 2008 Democratic Presidential Primaries because of his leadership and courage on issue after issue. Will the timid nature of the other Democratic Presidential hopefuls completely doom their campaigns before they even make official announcements of candidacy?
