"Oh, I Forgot! I'm A Democrat."

I'm wondering how many people in Massachusetts said that to themselves in the past week. It seems to have been many, with Elizabeth Warren suddenly springing to a 46-44 lead over Scott Brown in the latest PPP poll. I'd like to see more confirmation of that result -- it's better than I'd hoped for so early on.

Now we'll see if she's a good enough campaigner to hold onto a lead. Brown's good at that, so she'll have to do a pretty good job.

Unless she turns out to be an actively bad campaigner, I imagine her success or failure will probably be strongly linked to Obama's performance in his job and in his campaign and very little to anything she does independently.

Right, though the risk of her being an actively bad campaigner is higher than the risk with someone who had won a lot of elections before.

And here I thought from the title that this was a post about Obama's new aggressive spin to hedge fund Democratic economics.

If Warren keeps up her fight for the middle class against big banks message without it getting drowned out, she'll have a very strong crack at attracting pro-Warren voters who then go on to vote in the Presidential election because they are already in the voting booth.
