There is no doubt that if Republicans and Conservatives played it safe and nominated the safe, more winnable candidate that they stand to gain more ground in Congress. But what does that give us? I tell you what it gives: The same ol' tired, corrupt incumbent or professional politician who will always be part of the problem and never the solution. It will hurt because the Democrats have no principle (See Charlie Rangel) other than winning and the playbook for them doesn't change much. No Party holds onto their corrupt politicians better than the Democrats. Democrat politicians will hold onto office until they slam the cell door shut. Their voters will rationalize until the end as to why their politican is a victim instead of a perpetrator.
And just look at the 30 Democrat incumbents who voted against the healthcare bill running this time who all won their primaries. They were threatened with all kinds of retaliation at the polls for that vote, yet they remain.

Am guessing the media and the left will be making this the showcase contest in the mid-terms and O'Donnell will be this year's pinata. (not unlike Palin was a couple of years ago)
But in all fairness, Rove got things started with his remarks last night. Not sure what that dumb **** was thinking.....
It's hard to imagine this nomination as a microcosm of the national elections. Maybe if it was somewhere else:

My Endo doc went over my blood work. "I see your estrogen level is now at 315, do you feel like you have too much Estrogen now?"
I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
