What statistics? References, please, because if they were valid numbers, we would be using them.
There is no though that Katherine is not a fine woman. I have spent enough time with her and her husband to know that. That is not the issue. The issue is wether or not she is the candidate most likely to win the Senate race in Florida, and to what extent she would help or hurt the President's reelection efforts.
She truly is a fine woman. Mel, Bill, Dr. Dave and Dan are all fine men. This is simply not her time. It will come.
The statistics show that she actually did better with voters in her congressional district than Bush did when he ran in 2000. That's hardly someone who voters run from.
