  •  I think Carnahan can win as well... (7+ / 0-)

    But not as some progressive lion, which means the idea that Obama's lack of progressive policies is what's hurting her is bunk.  How progressive is Claire McCaskill?  How much did she win her race by?

    Sen. Reid is no different than the Republicans who demagogue the issue. He's no different than Sarah Palin, Steve King, Rush Limbaugh. Enjoy the company.

    •  Obama hurts Carnahan. (8+ / 0-)

      That seems obvious.  I think it is mostly the economy.  The lack of sucess there hurts her.  "Progressive polcies" include economc policies.  But, yes, the list in that comment does not resonate that much with regular voters.  As you know, Missouri is a purple state.  Economic populists can do well here.  Moderate liberals can succeed.  Progressives have trouble winning statewide.

      Carnahn is more prgressive than Claire and I think she will run an economic populist campaign.  

      Pooties and Woozles unite; you have nothing to lose but your leashes!
