Sen. Russ Feingold Takes on Bush AND Support Gay marriage!

Hurray for Sen. Russ Feingold (D-WI) who became the third national Democratic leadeer to publicly support equal marriage rights for gays and lesbians! Feingold came out this to support gay marriage rights and to oppose a constitutional amendment in Wisconsin that will prohibit same-sex marriages, civil unions and domestic partnerships.

Feingold also stepped up to the plate and sponsored a censure resolution against George W. Bush for his illegal wiretapping and other crimes. Unfortunately, he got little support from the rest of the Democratic "leadership".

Hopefully Feingold will run for President... I would love to vote for a true progressive Democrat with courage and conviction (NOT Hillary Clinton!)
