Whatever It Takes

Views

I love the last few days of campaigning. So much of artifice and pretense is stripped away from the candidates and their campaigns. Whatever it takes to win. Consistent messaging, careful massaging of constituencies, and all the rest of it be damned.

Now is when you get things like a Republican Senate candidate urging black voters to vote for her and Obama.
