Careful what you wish for. GW was supposed to be a "compassionate conservative". Instead what we got was a war mongering imbecile.

Specter was toast against Pat Toomey; he was losing in poll averages by 7.3%. Among likely voters, the margin was about 10%.

Sestak at least has a chance, trailing by 3.5% among likely voters.

Specter sure pooped in his food dish on this one. I doubt anybody will regret seeing this craven fossil out of power and taking his great-great-grandchildren fishing instead.

So you think that if a party has more extreme candidates they do better in general elections?

OK. Run with that.

As the article noted, the surprises cut both ways, so neither party should become overconfident.

Of course, mere facts won't stop them.

You figure he's named after Ayn Rand? A kind of objectivist version of a tea partier? She definitely liked to party. lol

Watch it ... I wanted to be Dominique Francon (with my own newspaper column in a big, slighty downscale NYC daily) after reading "The Fountainhead" in high school. Ayn was fun ... while it lasted. And don't all Russians like a party?
