Keeping His Eye On The Ball

Democrats are doubtlessly gleeful over the Foley/page scandal, and doubtless many of them harbor deep bitterness towards Republicans for the fun and games that was the impeachment trial of President Clinton. So it is understandable that they would take time out to either deservedly rake Republicans over the coals, or sit back and watch the raking.

But I was relieved to see that at least one Democrat understood that there are more important issues to be discussing, even if they don't generate a great deal of short-term political gain. That Democrat? You guessed it! Senator Russ Feingold.

The Iraq War is a mess, and it needs to end. And someone needs to keep us focused on that. I'm just glad that someone is Senator Feingold.
