  •  Wow, that's going to put a dent in (none)
    any spin of Romney as a "popular" GOP governor in a liberal state.

    •  Bingo (none)
      Romney supporters will try to do their best to cast Romney as the Mark Warner of the GOP.

      But if it doesn't fit, you must acquit...the spin.

      Romney's an opportunist, and he's got no chance of winning a national election.

      •  The Day of Moderate Republicans (none)
        Is Past. There are a few out there but I bet there are no more than 5 in the entire US Senate. And when push comes to shove, many times they go with the Republican leadership. So the days of moderate Republicans for Governor or even local office is gone. Republicans are no longer moderate. They sold their soul to the far Right.

        •  Who would you say the moderate Reps. are? (none)
          Voinovich, Dewine, McCain, Hagel...

          Who else?

          What's funny is that Voinovich used to be considered very conservative...

          Also, do you think this Republican move to the far right is good or bad for Democrats, considering Democratic lauding of centrism rather than liberalism? Has it forced our candidates and ideology to the middle rather than where we want it to be, or where we believe it should be?

    •  He also endorsed Bush over Kerry (none)
      and campaigned for him. Bush is immensly unpopular in Massachusetts. Its what you would expect from a Republican of course, but it was one of the reason peple opened their eyes.
