On the comeback trail with help from the Clintons

Philadelphia (CNN) – It's a large district in and around Philadelphia. It's not a swing seat; it's a safe Democratic stronghold-not a nailbiter. But in this midterm election, the 13th Congressional District race has attracted some national attention and some rock star fundraisers: Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Why such attention and star power? Because the candidate is Marjorie Margolies: related by marriage to the Clintons and tied to the former President by history.

    Well,
    Ok but be sure to straighten up and fly right or I will send my attack cat for a one to one meeting. When you are in Boston, use ya blinkah! And when you come to a fork in the road, take it. AND, by this time maybe Slick Willy's harmones have subsided! Last but not least Google Phillidelphia Lawyer by Maddox Brothers and Rose!

    @Rudy,

    Favorite son Kasich stands at 47% favorable and 29% unfavorable.
    -----------
    Have Ohioans forgotten what Kasich had tried to do their unions? After the law the he signed was overturned in a referendum, Kasich lamented, "It was too soon."

    Have Ohioans forgotten what Kasich and the Republicans have been doing to erode their voting rights?

    They probably have remembered all of those issues that you claim but perhaps they have a different viewpoint from you. Here's the bucket of water in your face, Great Pontificator Rudy, YOU'RE NOT MAINSTREAM. You are a hardcore liberal which puts you in the minority. They don't think unions are that great and they don't see asking someone for ID when they vote as a restriction. MOST people don't think like you.

    Only extremists post angry posts, tom. The majority of Ohioans voted on Kasich's union busting law, and overturned it. You can call me any name that you wish. The hate and venom in your words speaks for itself and you.

    I love how this conspiracy grows. Fact free means you can invent a new fantasy every day.
    The reality (occam's razor) – initial assessment was wrong and this was clarified later
    1st version conspiracy – it was mismanaged
    2nd version conspiracy – it was lied about
    3rd version conspiracy – no one cared and they lied
    4th version conspiracy – they actually caused the deaths (see above)
    5th version conspiracy – they planned and caused the deaths
    6th version conspiracy – they planned the deaths in an attempt to set up an evil satanic socialist dictatorship
    7th version conspiracy – they planned the deaths in an attempt to set up an evil satanic socialist dictatorship with space alien help

    So what your actually saying is Kenneth Lay, the Enron business executive who was convicted of fraud, and who cost 20000 Enron employees their jobs,is not dead ?

    And the Bush administration looked the other way to avoid complicity and involvement in Enron's legal debacle ?

    Good Job , Gunderson !

    She's on the comeback trail CNN??? She is the incumbent in a safe Democrat district. Her Democrat opponents are giving her a run in a primary! If this was a Republican primary race you would be portraying this as a war in the Republican Party. But since it is a Democrat primary fight, that obviously could never be the case right?

    Oh Great Pontificator Rudy, I'm not sure what anger you're talking about as there was no hate nor venom and certainly no extremism but I do appreciate the attempt.

    You and I can agree that only extremists post anger and hate. But you cut and pasted the wrong post. You should have reposted your coworker, Sniffit's, post where he told someone to "GFY". Lol

    Well Thomas,
    Not say anything about Kenneth Lay but good point. Now we have "Kenneth Lay" in White house! And Thomas, you had better plan for your own Future because there are a ton of Kenneth Lay's out there. When Marco Polo went to China he did as much of his traveling by water because of Bandits, Thieves, Highway men, Robbers and other all around nice guys. Nothing's changed. Many of those "Nice" guys in Government. Have fun Thomas!
