    NE before we win MO? Or why you think McCaskill still loses when she hasn't trailed in a poll and has three utterly weak Republicans with no money bashing each other in a negative primary and a Gubernatorial ticket for Democrats that's going to win by 20-25 percentage points, as well as an Obama campaign that is going to rev up youth turnout and minority turnout in KC and SLC (which killed Carnahan in 2010 with abysmal turnout). I'm just saying, McCaskill won't win big, but all the indicators suggest to me, and my rather non-scientific formulation of impressions, that she has about a 75% chance of winning by 1-3 percentage points, going off what has happened and what I've seen so far.

      to victory, but Kerrey would be about as liberal as McCaskill, both of them center-left.  (And also about as liberal as Kathleen Sebelius would have been if elected to the Senate from Kansas, which may have happened if she ran in 2008 if Roberts had retired.)
