We need someone other than Darcy Burner
This visit does not hurt Reichert in anyway, only because the democrats still continue to use the failed strategy of making a connection of Bush and Reichert. Of course, there is a connection, Reichert does what he is told to do by Bush's cronies. But, that strategy failed in 2006 because voters are thinking at a more local perspective. It's difficult to make the argument that Reichert is the same as Bush since he can tout his "independent" voting record.
Why is Darcy Burner still using this failed strategy? She needs to attack Reichert directly on Iraq, Health care, and integrity. Just him. Do not utter Bush in any way. This puts Reichert on the defensive, rather then just allowing him to say to moderate republicans that the democrats are not addressing the issues; they are just "bush bashing."
Either she get rid of her incompetent advisers, or the democratic party needs to endorse someone better.
