Looking ahead to 2008, several things are clear. First, we can see that Liddy Dole is more vulnerable than we would have expected a year or two ago. Second, we see that there is still a bit of apprehension about the race, and it's not considered to be a top-tier target for the Democrats. National Democrats think North Carolina is just too red, and their concerned that the Presidential race at the top of the ticket will drag down any Democratic candidate against DOle.
I happen to think that we can take Dole down - the latest poll data all seems to indicate that Dole is not popular, and the North Carolinians are open to the idea of a new Senator. I also happen to think that, if we're going to beat Dole, we need to start now. This is my strategy for beating Dole in 2008. Jerry Meek, take notes.
