    Dem out there to run.

    Take Utah for example. Republicans were so worried about losing a house seat because of Merrill Cook's craziness, they defeated him in the primary. They believed an open seat would be easier for them to defend. But running computer tycoon Derek Smith, did little to help as Jim Matheson had already stolen the show. Matheson running on his popular name defeated the little known Smith easily in the 2000 election.

    Basically the Dems shouldn't run a Derek Smith kind of canidate here.

    "Unfortunately when the Republican party needs to be a big tent party it seems to me we are doing everything we can to become a pup tent party. " — Virginia Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling (R)
