    schema:description "Russ Feingold is a rarity in American politics, having often defied conventional political wisdom and long odds. A staunch civil libertarian, he was the only member of the Senate who voted against the ill-conceived USA Patriot Act. In 2002, while the overwhelming majority of the Senate voted for the Iraq war resolution, Feingold opposed it. Washington insiders thought such votes could doom Feingold's 2004 reelection, but he won by a near landslide. Author Horwitt writes that Feingold "represents the progressive side of the Democratic divide more clearly and authentically than any successful politician on the national stage." Feingold's authenticity is deeply rooted in the old progressive tradition personified by one of his heroes, legendary senator Robert M. La Follette, placing a high value on honest, efficient government, investment in public education, health and infrastructure, and curbs on corporate power and other wealthy interests in the political process.--From publisher description."@en ;
