  •  The right kind of standard-bearer, win or lose (4.00)
    Sometimes we contest tough districts with me-too centrists who are afraid to show their party colors.

    Sometimes we run candidates who appeal to an atrophied local party base, but are downright damaging to party fortunes in the district -- leftwing eccentrics who lose proudly while reinforcing ingrained negative stereotypes of Democrats.

    Either way, we fail to improve our odds of taking the district in cycles to come.

    If you had to bet now, you'd have to bet Sensenbrenner to win ... but you'd also bet Kennedy to beat the point spread and improve our future prospects in the process.

    And sometimes an old bull, put to an unexpected challenge, runs amok and has to be put down.
