    I believe he is a "more Democrat" and not a "better Democrat".  Yes he'll do for his district:

    Representative Zack Space (who has won two elections in a solidly Republican district)

    (and remember he won the district because the former holder was a crook).

    But to represent the whole state in the Senate I would hope for a "better Democrat".

      AP:

      "If the news of Senator Voinovich's retirement is true, it would represent a real loss for the people of the Buckeye State," Space said in a statement Sunday night. "His moderate and independent voice will be missed."

      •  Probably true (0+ / 0-)

        if his voice actually matched his votes.  Unfortunately he marched in lock step with the worst administration in history.

        I hope this Space stuff gets nipped in the bud before anyone seriously thinks he is someone who would represent the Democratic party well.
