Charles, great points. I was more concerned with the reaction of the Tom Harkin likes who dismissed Obama's proposals as mere trickle down economics. The question then becomes if not Obama's plan, then what? It's like "what do you bring to the table?"
I find it amazing how certain states across our nation separate state politics from National politics. Especially in a state like Kansas where Sebilus is sitting pretty, yet would be in an uphill dog fight if she wanted the Senate seat.
