No apologies. No wavering. She's good enough for the Senate for me.

The problem is, It's not our votes she needs. She would need the votes of the indeopendents and undecideds, and she would not do well there.

She ran and won in a heavilly R district. Good.

Statewide is very different.

Keep in mind, Bush was picking up a lot of support, and the Dems can't raise too much about Florida - they have TONS of dirt there, too. Tossing out military votes, for instance.

Give that Howard Dean at the top of the Dem ticket will have an excited left-wing base, Harris would excite conservatives a lot more than McCollum or Martinez and help even the odds. Given the Dems tries in `02 and failed, I think she'd win.

All three of them (Harris, Martinez, and McCollum) would be good Senators, and any of the three would get my vote as the nominee.
