The Democratic leadership never learns

Rahm Emanuel told us that Tammy Duckworth was more "electable" than Christine Cegelis because of Duckworth's service in Iraq, and her sacrifice. I said at the time that Republicans always attack candidates on their strength. They've been doing it for years, but the Democratic leadership still hasn't caught on.
From Talking Points Memo:
GOP candidate Roskam accuses Democratic opponent Duckworth of wanting to 'cut and run' in Iraq.
Duckworth, a double amputee, lost both legs while serving in Iraq.
