    What a disappointment not only for the Democratic Party but for the nation as a whole. Blanche Lincoln as accepted millions in lobbyist donations from every sector of corporate America and does not deserve the seat she sits in. Why isn't CNN reporting about how the number of polling places was reduced from 83 to 2 for this election? Doesn't that raise red flags all across the spectrum? Wake up America.
