    I respect your opinion, and I’m glad you’re part of the discussion. That said, the ad doesn’t mention that she is (a) a Democrat (b) a challenger or (c) willing to challeng Bush on Iraq. All three of these are fundamental to why she is running and who she is.

    This is quite nice, getting Matt himself responding. I didn’t think my blog would get noticed.

    I don’t doubt she has to make the case that her opponent is an incumbent Republican in a blue state when such things are rare – hopefully rarer after November – but keep one thing in mind. If she runs 5 different television spots in her campaign (maybe more, maybe less), then one can be a purely soft bio spot, another about the Republican and ethics, another about Bush/Iraq, and still have 2 more to talk about education and healthcare.

    I wouldn’t complain about her bio ad just yet unless her entire campaign is based on such a vague and weak message as her biography.

    I despised the Kerry campaign for being all biography.

    I just don’t know that Darcy Burner is running that kind of campaign.
