Just saw this on the front of yesterdays local rag, and the post title pretty much sums up my thoughts. He may have a decent "success rate," but the last I heard, his overall approval rating wasn't looking so rosy.
I am proud to say I have never voted for Mr. Obey. He has completely lost touch with his constituents, and know it, yet has no fear of losing his seat anytime soon. I can only hope something akin to Massachusetts is on the horizon.(I know there's a pretty big push against Feingold that got a big morale boost, and I think the Journal may be running an article about that today... wonder how they'll slant it.)
To add: Today's story. Looks like they're putting on a brave face, but are deep down shaken. I do wish somebody could raise enough money to put up a decent fight against Obey though.
