Feingold decides against 2008 presidential bid

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - "Sen. Russell Feingold, a leading liberal in Congress and an outspoken foe of the Iraq war, announced on Sunday that he would not seek the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination.

'I'm sure a campaign for president would have been a great adventure and helpful in advancing a progressive agenda,' wrote Feingold, who is from Wisconsin, in a letter e-mailed to supporters and posted on his Senate campaign web site.

'At this time, however, I believe I can best advance that progressive agenda as a senator with significant seniority in the new Senate serving on the Foreign Relations, Intelligence, Judiciary and Budget committees,' the three-term senator said."
