      On the surface, I concede that you have a point.  2(.23)% might not seem like much.  However, it is worth recalling that Stephanie Herseth Sandlin was the incumbent, had the full support of the DCCC, and had made her vote against Obamacare front and center in her bid for re-election, not to mention numerous other votes that would have, on paper, appealed to Republicans (see my prior diary listing those positions: http://www.dailykos.com/...).

      None of these elements make reference to the obvious weakness of Kristi Noem as a candidate, weaknesses which only add to the sting of Stephanie Herseth Sandlin's loss.
