    Democrats on Capitol Hill fear Obama fallout
    By Andrew Ward in Washington


    Democratic jitters about the US presidential race have spread to Capitol Hill, where some members of Congress are worried that Barack Obama’s faltering campaign could hurt their chances of re-election.

    Party leaders have been hoping to strengthen Democratic control of the House and Senate in November, but John McCain’s jump in the polls has stoked fears of a Republican resurgence.

    “If people are voting for McCain it could help Republicans all the way down the ticket, even in a year when the Democrats should be sweeping all before us,” said the fundraiser, a former Hillary Clinton supporter.

    “There is a growing sense of doom among Democrats I have spoken to . . . People are going crazy, telling the campaign ‘you’ve got to do something’.”

    Concern was greatest among first-term representatives who won seats in traditionally Republican districts in the landslide of 2006. “Several of them face a real fight to hold on to those seats,” the fundraiser said.

    Tony Podesta, a senior Democratic lobbyist, said members of Congress were “a little nervous” after Mr McCain shook up the race with his choice of Sarah Palin as running mate and intensified attacks on Mr Obama.

    “Republicans have been on the offensive for the past two weeks . . . You don’t win elections on the defensive.”

    Judging from their "brilliant" attempt to demean Sarah Palin through her daughter's pregnancy, I would say their offensives are rather lacking in effectiveness as well.

    I would have to say that S.P. is the most dazzling VP running mate that I have ever seen; kudos to McCain. A stroke of genius. She has the dummies bewildered and confused. They don't know what side is up. Plus, the more they attack her and giver her free face time on TV the better it is for our side.
