    It is generally accepted that Stupak and Peterson, for example, are strong candidates who win their districts easily because they are popular with their constituents.  Peterson's a Blue Dog, but Stupak is mostly a liberal populist Democrat who voted against the AUMF in Iraq, votes against free trade agreements, and strongly supports unions and the environment.  Arguably, Stupak is as liberal a Democrat as can be elected in his district.  If either were to retire, those districts would shift to either toss-up or lean-Republican districts.  Winning the primary is not tantamount to winning the seat, at least in those districts.
