    personally, the "fighting dem" thing never grabbed me.  It's great to push good candidates, it's great if they are good people, and it's great if they know how the military works and it's non-negotiable that they take their responsibility to the military seriously.  But I'm not going to support someone just because he or she served, no matter what party the person represents.

    •  It was a good branding issue in 06 (1+ / 0-)

      with the Iraq fiasco, it was all part of our branding and positioning this cycle...I think having "fighting Dems" helped our cause immensely, even if they lost...They lent Dems nationwide some more credibility on the war and national security...It was part of our framing...and it worked even if individuals lost...
