    Dreihaus should be able to stand on his own and justify his positions on his own. No one expects him to be another Dennis Kucinich.

      How can he justify his positions when Jane Hamsher, who lobbied blogs in Driehaus' state to dog him to support health care, leaves him hanging after he supports the bill she wanted him to, and she leaves him out to dry.

      What Jane Hamsher has done it tell every Ohio politician to do is to ignore the blogs and do the opposite of what they advocate if they want to stay in office.

      Pity you don't see that.

      Her poll says, Driehaus listened to DailyKos, and now he should burn come November.

        power with voters in OH-18. Surely, you can agree that there might be all of 10 voters in OH-18 who read FDL, maybe 25 that read dailykos.

        I do agree that Hamsher has become poison, because she provides an outlet for energy that should be working for sustainable change and has turned it into a destructive force enabling Republicans. But OH-18 is probably one of the last places her influence will ever be felt - that and Wasilla AK.

          In the district.  You all seem like you just want to stick your heads in the sand and miss that point.  John Boehner is circulating this poll in the district saying, look, this liberal organization shows that this Democrat who supported health care is losing.

          I'd agree that on any given day, not alot of people in the district would have seen this at FDL, BUT THEY'RE SEEING IT BECAUSE JOHN BOEHNER IS WAVING IT AROUND....

          and write her off in the left blogosphere.  That's the solution.
