Feingold may rescue public option

Since you read this blog (as all cool people do), you know the word 'win' is not part of the Democratic Party lexicon. Hell, they let 10 Republican loudmouths at town hall meetings control their agenda.

But it's possible that 'win' may still be found in the dictionary of Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wisconsin).

After all, Feingold was the only senator who voted against the hated Patriot Act when it first came to a vote.

Now Feingold says he's "not interested" in a health reform bill unless it at least includes a public insurance option.

I think the Democrats might have found their presidential candidate for 2016. That is, if they want to reacquaint themselves with the concept of winning - instead of buckling under each time a Republican shakes their fist at a town hall.
