    I find it completely reasonable that she will be re-elected again.

    The "out-of-staters are trying to screw you" is actually a pretty effective tactic.

      That line of attack is about all Lincoln has going for her message wise.  She has so alienated her base so she has to distance herself from the Washington DEMS in order to win over independents and some GOPers. That of course means that she will piss off everyone of us.

      The problem for Blanche came when she misread the healthcare debate last fall. Her numbers were still decent going into the late summer/early fall. Arkansasans (overwhelming DEM BTW) actually favored the public option but she railed against it...angering her base and alternately firing up the GOP base.  Stupid!  Her numbers started to fall and now she is basically unelectable.  

      Her other asset is her campaign warchest.  But no amount of money spent can make people like you when they don't.
