Washington (CNN) - One day late last year, Blanche Lincoln held a news conference in the Senate. That sure doesn't sound like much of a headline, but at the time it was.
For much of 2009's heated health care debate, she avoided reporters like the plague.
She was such a stranger to the Capitol Hill press corps that when she walked into her news conference, she commented on what she thought was a new backdrop for the press studio frequented by senators. It had actually been renovated more than a year earlier.
Lincoln barely acknowledged Washington reporters - this one assumed she was being strategic and limiting her interaction - especially about the divisive health care debate.
Wonder which side will she run to in November. right-center-left?
Not to worry, she will be a complete stranger after the mid term elections.
it work in the primary ,,, it wont work in november... there was less than 20 % turn out ,,, she is toast...
she will never be re-elected.
Way to go, Blanche!
Better wake up Blanche, and start being a Democrat in the walk instead of just the talk. Won this one by a whisker.
well if she talks to reporters they ask questions like: why do you take so much money from the banks and anti-labor corporations, or why does your postion on the agriculture committee allow you to funnel MILLIONS of dollars to your own family...isn't that theft and corruption?
I think she will do a good job
