  •  I don't want McCaskill to lose (2+ / 0-)

    but I'm not gonna be depressed if she does. Especially if we hang on to the Senate without her.

    •  It will hurt, (0+ / 0-)

      but it's not the end of the world if we lose Mizzou.  At the end of the day, I still believe that Senate Dems have more paths to a majority than does the GOP.

      Feingold and Sestak's losses in 2010--the latter by just two points!--nearly broke my heart, too.  But we've gotta keep fighting!

    •  the key word in your sentence is "if" (0+ / 0-)

      I'm not a mega-McCaskill fan (and I live in the damn state), but the reality is that while she's "meh", Akin is bloody awful.  A "meh" Dem, even a Blue Dog, is much better than a tea bagger Repuke whack job.  You might start feeling depressed if McCaskill losing in November is just one of several.
