Should She Stay or Should She Go?

At yesterday's GOP pow-wow in Albany Jeanine Pirro was asked to quit her race against Hillary Clinton and instead run for State Attorney General, a position that has her name written all over it. Frankly, many believed that was what she was going to do in the first place, and pundits and skeptics have continuously sounded off that running for U.S. Senate was just simply above Pirro's pay grade.

It's a shame, really, that there appears to be this confusion as to what we should do about a candidate for that all-important race against Clinton next year. Who will be our dragonslayer? When heavy hitters backed Pirro, Ed Cox, the other likeliest choice, withdrew. John Spencer needs a lot more money and a much higher profile to be considered a threat to Clinton, if there really can be a threat to her reelection. And Pirro herself, who seemingly had a fair amount of support from around the state, now finds that support dwindling because many believe her campaign is just not gaining traction.

It's all so confusing. Right now, I can only be perfectly confident in the fact that I support the Republican candidate.
