Insurgent Dem. takes off in Montana Senate primary
Many people understand that to make progress in politics, you have to break some eggs. Conservative incumbents -- who play safe, and run to the middle of the road (where Jim Hightower is fond of saying there are only yellow stripes and dead armadillos) -- they have to be run at, have to be challenged and whacked. This is akin to what is going on in Connecticut, where the Republican's favorite Democrat, Joe Lieberman, is getting a heavy does of political reality 2006 style. Ned Lamont is nipping at King Joe's heels. The party Establishment, the Republicans, and the media are very aggressively tripping over each other trying to come to the rescue -- especially Hillary Clinton.
