No Russ in '08

Sen. Russ Feingold of Wisconsin announced today that he will not run for president in 2008, ending the hopes of the Kos crowd that he would be the Howard Dean of next year, the idea of some Jews that he would be the first Semitic president, and the dream of campaign finance fetishists of a McCain vs. Feingold presidential election.

So who takes the left-of-Hillary slot? Al Gore? John Edwards? Bernie Sanders?

Not a good day for Russ- he also missed out on making the Forward 50. Even George Allen made it. As did Scarlett Johansson.

Kucinich could try running again...

as for the "forward 50" many of those names do you think the average Jewish individual (NYer or non-NYer) actually recognizes?
