SOME HELPFUL CLARITY FOR VOTERS:

Obama, Clinton Join McCain Vs. Earmarks (ANDREW TAYLOR, 3/11/08, AP)

Democrats Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton on Monday joined Republican presidential candidate John McCain and a small band of GOP senators in making a run this week against the billions of dollars in home-state pet projects Congress funds each year.

And so we see again the division of labor, John McCain leads on issues and the two Democrats follow. Maybe they could answer that 3am phone and then hand it to Maverick to deal with the problem.

The fact that conservatives and their GOP allies can get this in the forefront tells me that the GOP will not lose many, if any, seats in the House or Senate. Even if Hastert's seat was "lost." People that are able to drive an agenda item simply aren't, by rule, sitting ducks.

I'm sure Bruno could enlighten us, but wasn't Haster's seat lost because Oberweis is a three-time loser?
