Sen. Russ Feingold (D.-Wis.) is still pursuing his anti-constitutional censure motion against President Bush for eavesdropping on al Qaeda’s international communication without a warrant. So far, only three Democratic senators support Feingold’s motion: Tom Harkin (D.-Iowa), Barbara Boxer (D.-Calif.) and John Kerry (D.Mass.). In an online interview with the Washington Post, Feingold warned his supporters that censure "is a gradual process." Meanwhile, Sen. Mark Dayton (D.-Minn.), who is not running for re-election, has called Feingold’s proposal "an overreaching step by someone who is grandstanding and running for President at the expense of his own party and his own country."
