Maybe to save money and reduce duplication, MoveOn.org and the Republican National Committee should just hire the same ad agency. Usually, the RNC and MoveOn, the giant online liberal advocacy group, go at it hammer and tongs. But they have found common cause of a sort. Both are highlighting the resolution by Sen. Russell D. Feingold (D-Wis.) asking the Senate to censure President Bush for authorizing warrantless surveillance by the National Security Agency.

Wisconsin Sen. Russell D. Feingold accused fellow Democrats on Tuesday of cowering rather than joining him in trying to censure President Bush over domestic spying. "Democrats run and hide" when the administration invokes the war on terrorism, Feingold told reporters. Feingold introduced censure legislation Monday in the Senate but not a single Democrat has embraced it.

The United States should set a target date of Dec. 31, 2006, to complete the military mission in Iraq and have all U.S. forces removed from the nation, Sen. Russell D. Feingold said Wednesday. The Wisconsin Democrat, considered a possible candidate for president in 2008, said his proposal was based in part on what had happened when other timetables were set in Iraq, setting things in motion to transfer sovereignty, hold elections and prepare a constitution.

Democrats distanced themselves Monday from Sen. Russell D. Feingold's effort to censure President Bush over domestic spying, preventing a floor vote that they fear could alienate swing voters. A day of tough, election-year talk from the Wisconsin Democrat and Vice President Dick Cheney ended with Senate leaders sending the matter to the Judiciary Committee. "I look forward to a full hearing, debate and vote in committee on this important matter," Feingold said in a statement late Monday.

With two key votes approaching in President Clinton's impeachment trial, Senate Democrats fear that two of their own may break ranks to join Republicans, possibly helping to prolong the proceeding, Senate sources said Monday. The two are Sens. Russell D. Feingold of Wisconsin and Bob Graham of Florida. Unlike many senators, they largely have kept their counsel during the impeachment trial, now in its third week.

Though there was no final vote on their campaign finance reform bill Thursday, there was something of a victory parade for Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Russell D. Feingold (D-Wis.). After beating back one last major amendment that threatened to undermine their bill, they bounded out the Senate chamber doors, waved off applause from Capitol Hill tourists and stopped to hug Granny D, the 91-year-old protester who has been walking circles around the Capitol in the name of reform.

The Senate Republican majority began its election-year drive to kill campaign finance reform Monday, confident that the public will neither notice nor care whether Congress leaves election laws unchanged, despite two years of revelations of fund-raising improprieties by both parties. Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott (R-Miss.) offered as the GOP's sole prescription a measure to restrict the use of union dues for political purposes.

The Senate's move to ban large, unlimited cash contributions to political parties stands on strong legal ground and should survive court challenges, many legal experts say. However, the campaign finance reform measure approved Monday also seeks to restrict the language in "issue ads" that are broadcast within 60 days of an election, a provision that some experts say will be struck down.

As the Senate prepares for a showdown over campaign finance reform, Democrats who have been the core supporters of a bill to ban unlimited donations to political parties are getting peppered by key allies with reasons to jump ship. Organized labor denounces provisions that it says would silence union voices during the height of campaigns--a criticism AFL-CIO leaders intend to spotlight at a news conference today.

The Senate voted overwhelmingly Wednesday to raise federal campaign contribution limits for the first time in more than 25 years, a key bipartisan accord that significantly improves the prospects for a sweeping overhaul of the political finance system. Under an amendment to the reform bill sponsored by Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Russell D. Feingold (D-Wis.), the limit on individual donations to federal candidates would be doubled to $2,000 per election from $1,000.
