In a recent interview with Salon, Sen. Russ Feingold got vocal about the mess in Iraq and the likelihood that we won’t be hanging a “mission accomplished” sign over a working democracy in Iraq before it comes time to withdraw troops. Meanwhile, Robert Kuttner notes in the Boston Globe a CBS poll reporting that 64 percent of Americans “oppose Bush’s conduct of the war,” and hence:

[A]n antiwar candidate such as Feingold would be an odds-on favorite to win the Democratic presidential nomination over bigger names disabled by their own fatal caution.

Keep your hat on Hillary, winning the nomination in 2008 will take more than a diplomatic distaste for war, Bush cronyism, and a federal disaster, or even a season of what some on the right are calling Hillary’s primetime infomercial.
