    Given how red Nebraska is, the Senate seat that Nelson's currently warming will also be returning to it's "normal" party orientation.

    Although I wish some bright-spark in the DNC would come up with the idea of selling the core Democratic ideals - of liberty for people over corporations, of well-paying jobs and of genuine security rather than neoconservatism - to the Midwest and Great Plains States.

    I think that it could resonate, if only the Democrats didn't let the Republicans define them all the damn time.
