    I grew up in Dave Camp's district as well, though not in Midland. He actually spoke at my high school graduation.  I got out of there, went to school in Ann Arbor, and then got out to the East Coast. Where I live now is so Democratic that there aren't even any local Republicans to fight against.

    The best that can be said about him is that he's not a screaming firebreather. He'll vote for the worst radical right-wing policies, but at least he's not on "Hardball" in your face and screaming about it.  I don't think the guy is smart enough to make it in the spotlight.  But he's also so mild-mannered that he's not going to do much to polarize people in Midland, Mt. Pleasant or Big Rapids.

    I'd like to say that ayone with a few brain cells and a little charisma could have a shot, but that district always seemed so right-wing that it might be a lost cause.
