  •  Quite honestly (none)
    Honestly, certain professions seem to get a favorable reception from the public.  If a candidate is a medical doctor or a veteran it seems to be a mark in their favor.  As security has been on the public's mind, veterans are currently given a larger mark.  Now, this won't protect them if their are other (actual or preceived) skeletons in their closets (Kerry) or protect them if they run a bad campaign (Cleland) but it is definitely something strongly in their favor.

    Also, though you didn't say so, a goodly portion of the fighting dems. running are not "right of center", at least not according to their issues page.
