Feingold said Dems must unite on Iraq policy

U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold aimed some of his criticisms at fellow Democrats, saying all of his colleagues in the Senate need to stand by a new Iraq policy that would bring troops home from the war in Iraq.

"I'm not here to criticize my party," Feingold said, but added the reason Congress' approval rating fell below President Bush's because many do not see any change from the policy in Iraq. "This will be the number one test if whether we are worthy of the mandate you gave us in November."

Feingold said that he is going to reintroduce his timetable amendment soon with Senate Leader Harry Reid, hoping he gets more solid support in the Senate.

Feingold also applauded the Dem slate of candidates in 2006, saying it was the "best group of candidates I've ever worked with."

Feingold talked about his nationwide tour in 2005 and 2006, saying he didn't travel around while considering a presidential bid.

"I went to 19 states, and everyone said 'Oh, he's running for president.' No, I just wanted different people to work with in Washington," Feingold said.
