  •  Why do you think KY doesn't like Obama? (0+ / 0-)

    It's because of smears done by the GOP.  Nothing else.

    Besides, what has the Kentucky Democratic Party really done for the Democratic cause?  NOTHING.  The party really doesn't have its act together and as a number of us Kossacks pointed out previously that there has been ample time for the state party or any Democrat to announce their candidacy for the U.S. Senate.  Shows how much the party really cares about beating Mitch McConnell for re-election.  Maybe they wanted 2008 candidate Bruce Lunsford instead.

    Remember what Howard Dean said how an evangelical Christian came up to him in 2003 (or was it 2004) and told him the reason why she's voting for him is because he has "conviction?"  Same thing can apply for the citizens cited in the New York Times article I mentioned.  Note how these people are warming up to Ashley Judd, even though not considering voting for her immediately.

    That's why the Democratic Party must nominate Democrats who don't spew talking points.  At least with Ashley Judd, as long as she connects with KY voters on a personal level, then she's fine.  And considering polls show this race to be competitive, I think we've got our candidate.
