In R.I., a Feisty Conservative Challenges Sen. Chafee

Bad news gets the larger headlines, however slowly but surely things are improving in Iraq.
Gen. John Abizaid made headlines three weeks ago when he told Congress that civil war was a possibility in Iraq. Yesterday he went into two of Baghdad's most dangerous neighborhoods to see whether a new U.S.-led offensive against the death squads and insurgents is making any progress.

First, some background: This summer, any chance of success in Iraq seemed to be slipping away. Even Abizaid, who as head of U.S. Central Command has overall responsibility for the troops here, had to admit in his congressional testimony that the trends were

I'm supporting the conservative in the race (Laffey). If Chafee wins the primary, then I'd have no preference in the general election. This Rhode Island race is much different than the Ohio situation. I supported Pierce in the primary, but I am able to accept DeWine in the general. Chafee is not a lukewarm conservative like DeWine. Chafee is an out and out liberal who only helps by keeping Republicans in the majority in the Senate. I currently expect little or no change in the party breakdown in the senate (+/- 1 seat) so he is useless and I won't mind seeing him lose.
