    No, she should end her statement with a subliminal message that will help convince Independents to vote Democratic, and that McKinney is not representative of mainstream Democrats.

        Do you honestly think that an Independent voter is more likely to support the Democrats after this incident?

          who think that anyone's vote in November 2006 or November 2008 will be swayed by this incident.

          in their district b/c of this incident, then most likely s/he wouldn't have voted for a Democrat anyway. If their support for Democrats were so soft and they didn't have the ability to distinguish one lowly Democratic representative who is known to be a maverick and does not hold a leadership position in the party, then that person certainly would have waivered the 1st time that a negative attack ad hit the Democratic representative/Senator that s/he would have presumably voted for....

          Besides, midterm elections aren't about bringing out independents. They're about bringing out the base. Negative attack ads are intended to suppress independent voters from coming to the polls, especially in the midterms....

          I'm no fan of hers but these kinds of statements are rediculous. If an ind decides to not vote for a d because of her while ignoring the taliban of the right then they are stupid enough to vote against all d's anyways. Coburn actually said that girls were having orgies in school bathrooms. Tom DeLay threatens judges.

          Ever hear of Terri Schiavo? Maybe if some more Democrats would highlight what the GOP is actually doing while in power nstead of wailing about McKinney we'd get more votes.

          Or we could knash our teeth about a jr congress critter and help the wingnuts push the story further.

          I'm an independant voter and I'm a lot less likely to vote Democrat if people like you and jacinto and phillygal are representative of the Democratic party. Y'all and this thread stinks to high heaven.
