EAST CAMDEN, Ark. – Days before Arkansas voters deliver a verdict on her political career, Democratic Sen. Blanche Lincoln spent Saturday telling them that she's built up the clout in Washington to best represent the state's interests.

Talking up her credentials in Washington flies in the face of the anti-incumbent and anti-Washington sentiment that Lincoln faces. Halter, backed by labor unions that have soured on Lincoln, is portraying himself as an agent of change and Lincoln as the status quo.

Lincoln is considered one of the most vulnerable incumbents in Washington this year. She angered conservatives by supporting the Democratic-led health care overhaul, but frustrated liberals by opposing including a government-run insurance option as part of the reform package.

Being a powerful lowlife in the land of lowlife seldom interest voters today.

Sadly we still will only get a 1-2% change in the political beast.

That’s affirmative. Halter is to the left of Fidel.

I’ve never seen so much money spent in Arkansas for a Democrat primary race. Halter is the SEIU butt boy. Even if Lincoln wins the primary she will be soundly defeated in the fall.

I posted this because of her apparent disconnect about the anti-incumbent sentiment.

That “force is strong” this year. Those who discount it make a very grave error.

Does a Republican have a chance in this race? I can't tell about Arkansas... I would think the Blanche would be toast.

Halter seems to be getting his funding from some pretty hard left sources.

Exactly.

Best interests of her and her co congress conspirators is more like it rather than best interests of the state.

Blanche, honey, get a clue as to why you are being booted.

Yes, many Dems and some Pubbies will go.

Actions have consequences.

Traitors should never go unpunished. To the fullest extent of the law.

Like I always say, if you have to tell people all about how (cool, powerful, sexy, elegant, etc) you are...you aren't.

Is she running commercials? I live right across the river just south of Memphis, and nothing appears to be running in W. Arkansas, at least out of Memphis.

I assume she is running commercials, but know nothing about here campaign.

The only reason I posted the article is the apparent disconnect she has with the prevailing attitude about incumbents.

Yeah, Rep. Boozman (R) will burn her toast. There are many repubs in the primary but the victor will likely dethrone Blanche.
