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
, 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.
