    I like Paul Hackett, I really do. But it's his force of personality that a lot of us are equating  with progressive values, apparently without a lot of qualifications - attacking Sherrod Brown and other progressives.

    I'm not saying Hackett does not share in many of these values, but quite frankly, I have seen his 'mission statement' and I'm not all that sure he is where I am on a lot of issues  I consider important to me - he is an unknown on a lot of issues.  

    The reason Paul stands out is partially his service record, but more importantly, his strong, strident and uncompromising tone. I like that. But that's personality; when it comes time to vote on the Floor of the Senate {or House} it means little.

    Tone may help get you elected, but it can backfire easily.
