    that the 2000 election produced an appointed Missouri senator (and that seat was lost to Talent two years later)...and the loser was our first AG of the Bush mess, Ashcroft. I think acting governor Roger Wilson would have been the best choice for the Carnahan seat had he not been filling the remainder of Carnahan's gubernatorial term. Carnahan's untimely passing, like that of 1976 Democratic Senate primary winner Jerry Litton, was a major blow to the party's progress in Missouri, even with Bob Holden's win of the governorship in 2000.

    Wilson, Robin Carnahan, and Dick Gephardt represent different political generations and levels of leadership in the state along with Nixon. Now, we need stronger candidates in the state representative and senate races. Grassroots effort, anyone?
