Feingold Campaign Registers Domain Names

As you may have heard, Senator Feingold's Senate campaign has registered a couple of 2008 campaign domain names. The Wisconsin State Journal reports:

With rampant speculation on whether U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wis., will run for president in 2008, his Senate campaign made a few notable recent moves. It registered the domain name for the Web site www.russfeingold08.com as well as the .org and .net versions. And, no, he's not facing re-election to the Senate that year.

"We saw so many sites being snapped up out there that we reserved a few sites," says George Aldrich, Feingold's past campaign manager. He notes that many sites, such as www.russforpresident.com, seeking to draft Feingold, are already taken and some already have content. Others are parked by supporters in case Feingold decides to run.

One question Aldrich can't answer is why the campaign let www.russfeingold.com lapse earlier this year. Perhaps an oversight.


Daniel S. at The Kentucky Democrat notes that Feingold's campaign also registered FeingoldForPrsident08.com.

This is definitely yet another sign that the Senator is seriously thinking about a presidential run. But we shouldn't get too excited yet: for starters, many politicians register domain names just to keep their options open and to make sure they aren't taken up by their opponents for attack purposes.

And even if Senator Feingold forms an exploratory committee or officially announces as a candidate that doesn't mean our work is done-it's just beginning! Some candidates have formed exploratory committees and then decided not to run (Paul Wellstone in 2000) and some have gotten in the race and then dropped out before the first votes are cast because of lack of money/supporters (Elizabeth Dole and Bob Graham, to name two.)

So, here's some things to do (if you haven't already) to encourage the Senator to run and make sure his campaign is successful:

1. Make a contribution to his Progressive Patriots Fund. Unfortunately, money is still considered the most important sign of support in politics (until the voting, anyway).

2. Write the Senator a letter encouraging him to run. You could kill two birds with one stone by sending a letter with a check to the Progressive Patriots Fund! Regardless, make sure to include all your contact information and let him know that you'd be willing to do volunteer work for his campaign.

3. Get in touch with other Feingold supporters by joining the Yahoo group, and the forums at DraftRuss.com and RussforPresident.com Together we'll be even more effective and able to come up with even more ways to encourage and support the Senator.

For example, if I'd run this by some other folks, I'm sure I'd have more than three suggestions right now! But that's enough for now...I still haven't done the first two myself!

But, getting back to the initial topic of the post, I have one other contribution I can make to Senator Feingold: If his campaign wants the russfeingold.blogspot.com website, I'll gladly turn it over to them. With one condition...if Senator Feingold is elected President, he'll make me Secretary of Labor.

Come on, it's the same deal President Clinton made with Robert Reich! Look it up!
