Democratic Angst II: Landrieu

Building on the previous entry about Kerry, the opposition angst that he demonstrates in that column is in full view with Senator Landrieu. On Meet the Press this weekend, she tried to paint Terrell as being in lock-step with the policies of the President, while she was an independent who would stand up for Louisiana when the President is wrong. But unless I missed it, she never offered such an example. Best as I can tell, the strategy is to suggest that she’s an opposition candidate to appease Democrats, but demonstrate that you she’s with the President to appease Republicans and moderates. We’ll see if you can fool all of the people all of the time.
