Meet the Press
I think Senator Feingold did a great job on "Meet the Press" this morning...but, don't take my word for it check out the video or the transcript.
Tim Russert asked Senator Feingold about all the usual topics: Iraq, the censure of the president, Hillary, the 2008 presidential race, and I think Senator Feingold did a great job getting his message across despite Russert's best attempts to trip him up (which is Russert's job, I guess).
Senator Feingold appearance on "Meet the Press" has won a lot of his praise among bloggers for his saying that he will support whoever wins the Democratic Senate primary in Connecticut, whether it is Joe Lieberman or Ned Lamont...thus saying he will NOT support Lieberman if he loses the primary and runs for election as an Independent. You wouldn't think a Democratic Senator saying he'll support the Democratic nominee for Senate would be newsworthy, but, unfortunately, in this case it is. You can read more about this in Jonathan Singer's post on MyDD.
Obviously the Republican National Committee also thinks that Senator Feingold did a good job, otherwise they wouldn't have felt the need to issue this press release.
Just to point out one, of probably many mistakes in the RNC press release, it claims that: " Sens. Kerry And Feingold Even Asked For Donations To Fund Their "Cut And Run" Campaign...(Sens. Kerry and Feingold, "No Time To Play It Safe," Email, 6/20/06)" Okay, I actually received that email and it focused entirely on getting on getting us to contact our senators to support the Kerry-Feingold Amendment, it never asked for donations. But hey, never let the truth get in the way of a third-rate press release.
That's it for this time...Until next time, keep going Forward!
