      giving her a leg up on the rest of the 2012 newbies, right?  Of which there will be quite a few I think.

      So it would make sense.  Plus the old WA-01 is a safe Dem seat so there's no real risk in this, and Burner will probably have greater appeal to the increased number of liberals there.  This seems like a smart move for her.

    •  So I guess Heitkampf is probably (3+ / 0-)

      winning in North Dakota, adjusting the craziness of this poll; you know, that has Cramer up 31 points over a very strong Democrat.

      I always thought the Democratic polls of the race were too conservative as well, what with Obama down 20-24 points in both, when he came within 9 points in 2008.
