Democratic bloggers abuzz over Hackett exit

WASHINGTON - The Democratic blogosphere was abuzz Tuesday with the news that one of its heroes, Iraq war veteran Paul Hackett, had dropped out of the Ohio Senate race.

Hackett, a civilian lawyer and a major in the Marine Corps reserves, caused a sensation last year when he nearly defeated Republican Jean Schmidt in a special election in a heavily Republican congressional district in southern Ohio.

At first blush, Hackett's exit seemed good news for the Democrats since it removed the danger of a costly primary and left seven-term Democratic Rep. Sherrod Brown a clear shot at defeating incumbent Republican, Sen. Mike DeWine.
But left-leaning Democratic bloggers helped lift Hackett to his near-victory last year and some are irate that their man appears to have been squeezed out of the race.

DeWine is, as is every other Republican who stands between us and control of the Senate.”

It isn't Dewine that is standing in "our" way. It is a total lack of committment to anything the American middle class values as important.

It is exactly that inside the Beltway mentality that has turned the map red.
