An interesting contradiction being spotlighted by the RNC: Sen. Claire McCaskill Asked White House Not To Hold 2012 Democratic National Convention In St. Louis For Fear It Would Complicate Her Re-Election Campaign.

ĒMs. McCaskill, one of the presidentís closest friends in the Senate, took her concerns directly to the White House, according to party leaders familiar with the selection process.

She argued that her re-election could be complicated if the convention was held in St. Louis, because the Democratic gathering will almost certainly attract protesters and compete for fund-raising.Ē

This could hurt McCaskell in 2012, if she can be blamed for costing St. Louis $226 Million.
I think she is in trouble already, because Obama is so unpopular in Missouri and she was such a high profile supporter in 2008. It seems like a few good commercials with photos and clips of her extolling Obama will go along way toward beating her. However, Jim Talent was probably the strongest potential challenger (http://www.nationalreview.com/campaign-spot/258631/claire-mccaskill-didnt-want-her-partys-convention-st-louis#), and he surprisingly announced the other day that he is not running.
McCaskell is a very skillful politician. She has very effectively pretended to be a moderate for years in Missouri, when her heart is far left.



Claire certainly has the best interests of her constituents at heart. :rolleyes:

I hope she loses big time. I only wish that we still lived there so I could vote against her.
It's disappointing that Jim Talent said he will not run. He was a very effective US congresmen and senator, a truly good guy.
