Yikes, touch a nerve did I? I'm looking at this year as a chance to clean house. We're going to lose seats, but it would be better if we lost people like Bayh and Lincoln than Feingold and Boxer. Let's focus our attention and effort in the right places and away from elected officials who continually undermine us.
If only we could be so lucky as to be free of Bayh.
Jerome, I'm wondering if the IL senate seat might become a replay of MA. If it's Giannoulias v Kirk, you'll have an out of touch, entitled member of the elite vs a republican with a genuine shot to take a seat with large symbolic value.
One more point to add: I think the netroots community should focus intensely on state legislative races this time around. The winners of 2010 will determine how the congressional districts will be drawn. I don't see much of a chance for losing control of either chamber this cycle, so maybe our money should target local races.
First, why would neocon Bill Kristol have sources inside either the obama or powell camps?
Even if he did get the scoop, he's probably releasing it in an attempt to derail the speech and fuck over powell
