I heard it on NPR this afternoon, and Mass for Feingold has the statement he sent to his supporters.
I want you to know that Ive decided to continue my role as Wisconsins Junior Senator in the U.S. Senate and not to seek the Democratic nomination for President in 2008….
Im sure a campaign for President would have been a great adventure and helpful in advancing a progressive agenda. At this time, however, I believe I can best advance that progressive agenda as a Senator with significant seniority in the new Senate serving on the Foreign Relations, Intelligence, Judiciary and Budget Committees. Although I have given it a lot of thought, I cannot muster the same enthusiasm for a race for President while I am trying simultaneously to advance our agenda in the Senate.
No Warner. No Feingold. What’s going on here — is everyone clearing the decks for Hillary Clinton? Is she that much of a shoo-in?
