    Um. 11 points does not qualify an "only".

    It does in this case when so many say she can't win

    Um, yeah, and an 11-point Coons lead does not disprove this sentiment. Possibly the opposite, in fact.

    Eh, whatever. If you're okay with universal health care being the law of the land for the rest of our lives as long as you can feel good about yourself, so be it.

    "At least she's a conservative" is just as bad as "At least he's a Republican", and that seems to be what people are doing with O'Donnell. If Castle was a corrupt scumbag, or a weasel like Specter or Crist, I'd understand booting him out, but I have yet to see any evidence of that. Meanwhile, O'Donnell has not made a great impression so far.

    Not sure why I'm even bothering... anyone who shows a willingness to throw their vote away with a 3rd party candidate when they admit so much is at stake has to live on a different plane of existence than I do.
    What would be the sense in having a majority if someone like Castle would vote against repealing the HC bill or would vote for a cap and trade. We'd still end up with the same results, only they would be called bi-partisan.
    Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.

    Not the same; Castle is a moderate, not a liberal. And he voted against the health care bill the first time, no reason to believe he wouldn't have done it again.

That's the choice here. O'Donnell could never, ever win in Delaware, so the choice is either compromise with a moderate or let a Democrat take what had up to now been a safe GOP pickup.

    Extremist conservatives are no different than extremist liberals... both think that you're either with them, or against them, and there is no in-between. Unfortunately, there may be enough of them in Delaware to blow what had been a semi-decent chance for the GOP to take the Senate. Hopefully they'll come to their senses and nominate Castle, though.
    Well, the GOP was given the opportunity to show their loyalty to the voters wishes, and their response to their "defeat" in Delaware was to snub the voters and say they were going to help her win the election. Getting their old-boy elected was more important than getting an American elected.

    They'd rather have a scum bucket Democrat in the Senate than a Republican wild-card who might rather obey the Constitution than play golf with the Democrats.

    And that, my friend, is EXACTLY why the Tea Party is so influential this year. The Americans are tired of the liberals and socialists calling themselves moderates while they rape the Republic.

    There's no essential difference. When push comes to shove, the flaming moderate always votes to screw the public then he goes back to screwing the pooch.

    The only thing moderates can be counted on is to lose their alleged "principles" when principles count, and they vote with the Democrats.

    He might as well be running as the Communist candidate.
    Yes, Delaware is the state that elected as their senator a man so deeply under the control of the major credit card companies conveniently home-officed in his state that he had no qualms about selling out the middle and lowers classes by making it more difficult to file for personal bankruptcy even as the credit card companies were jacking up fees and interest rates. Delawarians don't have a lot of integrity, obviously.

    No.

    Only a fool turns his back on a Democrat.

    It makes it easier for him to steal your wallet.
