  •  I don't think that's much of a comparison (none)
    I don't really support Frost, but I think it's ludicrous to think that this is analogous.  Frost was in a district with 60%+ Republican voters for the Presidency.  There was no Democrat in 2000 running in a district where 60%+ of the voters were voting for Nader.  There were few where it was even 10%, and those districts were actually even easier to win, because the Green Party wasn't anywhere near winning, and they were so liberal that there was no chance of the Republicans winning.

    If there were a district where Nader was polling 60%, you can bet that the Democrats there would have tried to associate themselves with him.

    •  Not quite 60% (none)
      But Darelene Hooley was facing a 52%+ GOP registration advantage vs. 47% in her district here in Oregon, and was re-elected and didn't have to run "I support Bush" ads and run away form her party ID.

      cheers,
