"No Russ For You"

Russ Feingold won’t be running for president. Personally, I’m glad he’s not because this allows me to avoid making up my mind about what to say about a Feingold presidential campaign. On the one hand, I’m very substantively enthusiastic about Feingold and what he stands for, and thus would be disinclined to say bad things about his candidacy. On the other hand, it seems to me that he would have been a terrible messenger for a Feingold-style message and that nominating him as a presidential candidate would be a pretty poor tactical decision.
