    POINT 1. I might be wrong.  But trashing me isn't going to accomplish that.

    POINT 2. In a close race those votes are wasted, because the focus is on winning.  But this is going to be a race about mandate, so I don't think my vote is wasted.

    POINT 3. Her constituency, not me, her constituency is dramatically opposed to the war in Iraq, and quite likely the bailout as well.  That is the claim I am making.

      This is a board whose mandate is electoral victory, and you're here polling the board with attacks against Democrats? Did you expect positive feedback?

        Thoughtful feedback.

        No thought has gone into most of these flames.

        Think about it; I might be totally wrong, but my argument is elevated by the fact that people are misrepresenting me, not bothering to address my concerns.

        There have been some constructive disagreements here.

        And by the way, the people who are so worried about the oh-so-profound negative impact of this post are posting comments the most aggressively, meaning that it's getting more hits that something probably more important.

        At least own that, my fellow closet-Green co-conspirators!

          Actually, the problem is that no thought went into your diary.  There is no positive feedback because there was nothing positive or about your diary. There is nothing to deconstruct - your diary just plain sucks.  Its completely worthless.
