  •  He is pro-life. (0+ / 0-)

    I can't think of a vote on which his being pro-life has mattered in four years.

    •  HCR in 2009 (1+ / 0-)

      I remember his name was brought up during it when Nelson was trying to block it unless it had certain anti-funding language put in and Casey was the one writing it up or something like that.

      I don't think it would be an issue on our side - I was trying to say being pro-life should help him, even if that cultural issue is not as prevalent in Pa politics.  It was a big enough issue that the GOP wouldn't allow any pro-choicer as McCain's VP.    

      Stop this roller-coaster ride, I'm getting off. So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish.

      Really, I probably won't vote for Casey.  I thought long and hard and then voted for Onorato, but Casey I probably can't.

      Also, the whole health care thing, instead of being smooth, was almost derailed by Roman zombies, which gave it somewhat poor optics.

      •  I don't give pro-life candidates my money. (2+ / 0-)

        But if that's my party's nominee, that's who I'll support in the general.

          usually my sweetie and I discuss it and we end up voting for the Dem, but I am holding out hope that Corbett and his buddies manage to botch things to the point it won't be close in two years.

          This diary's general point is a bit scary, though: the 2012 map doesn't seem all that favorable to Democrats.  Then again, maybe "broad but weak" is the only kind of majority either party has seen since the 80's.
