    politics is also about how you present ideas and information to voters - about what candidates best represent a district, and which candidates will have a great chance of winning.  From that perspective, it's more than just "who voters like best"...it's also the options presented to them.

    For example, I love many very, very liberal political thinkers, but I don't think that having them run in conservative districts is the best way to maintain control of Congress.  Having candidates who relate to voters is also very, very important.

    That being said, that was ONE DARN CLOSE election up there in WA.  I don't think she "doesn't represent" the views of many people there - it was just a close one, and perhaps another moderate D candidate could pull off a win there.  Who knows.
