Politics is a science and Rove is a numbers guy. No matter how they shook and stirred them up, Castle was their best opportunity to snag the seat. If I lived in DE I would have voted for Christine, or Castle or any Republican because of the symbolic importance of winning the seat that Biden held.
Imagine winning Obama’s, Biden’s and Byrd’s seat after taking Kennedy’s.. That right there would have been reason to go on a celebration bender.
We might have to learn the hard way that just because we the ideological, involved and strongly opinionated part of the electorate want something, does not make it so. In the end, we need to vote for the most conservative candidate that can win. The next election is too important to impale ourselves on ideological purity. That’s just the reality of it.
So when we get to the choice between Stalin and Mao, we have to pick the most Conservative between the two?
No thanks, I will only vote Conservative.
