    but it is a long way from being, and so if all things are equal, I go with the wman. In this case, all things are not equal. Jennifer is by far the best candidate.

    Stop Rob "The Job Outsourcer" Portman. Jennifer Brunner for Senate

    •  I agree, but (0+ / 0-)

      I don't know yet who is the better candidate. I agree that Brunner does sound attractive, but I am not persuaded that Fisher is as bad as some Brunner partisans here make him out to be; I find some of the arguments polemical and too eager to dismiss the positions he says on his website he is holding, and that always make me a bit suspicious. (Also, I do not automatically espouse the "progressive" position - in quotes because it isn't always well-defined.)

      However, to be honest, the Ohio senate race is not my first concern; here in California we have enough political fights to more than occupy my time. (I intend to support Boxer over whomever, and Brown over Whitman, but that should be obvious. I may also be losing my mayor (Gavin Newsom) and the fight to replace him is going to be, shall we say, interesting.) So, in the end, I will probably be guided by the consensus that emerges here on the Ohio race, my main concern being, frankly, to support the candidate who can best put the seat in the Democratic column.

      It is not within the powers of the government to help its citizens get into heaven, nor to save them from hell.
