and a great essay in wishful thinking. The Ras numbers mean exactly this if they're accurate: the electorate prefers Obama over Hillary in the general RIGHT NOW. It doesn't mean Hillary can't make up or surpass the difference.
General match-ups are not the most relevant of polls, but they do provide some insight as to the status of the race.
Oh, and continuing to emphasize gender solidarity as a way to support Hillary may not have the effect you're hoping for, despite women making up the majority of the electorate.
Even if Obama's message of hope meant never questioning Clinton's records, and even if the poster were somehow beholden to Obama's campaign theme, you would still be wrong. You sound like Jeff Gannon talking about Democrats. "Alternate Universe" indeed.
he's a Spitzer-type populist with a great record on attacking governement waste and corruption. Sure he's pro-life, but I doubt he'd buck leadership to support a judge who'd overturn Roe.
Having high name recognition isn't exactly a bad thing, either.
This is not some wild-card race like OH-02 where we have nothing to lose and can throw caution to the wind. We are trying to take down Rick Santorum here. Ideology aside, Casey is a better candidate from almost any angle and might actually make a better Senator than Pennachio.
