The New York Times covers

The New York Times covers the Terrell/Landrieu race. The Times admits that Landrieu is “slipping in the polls.” The Times notes that “to appeal to Louisiana’s relatively conservative voters, Ms. Landrieu has drawn attention to her support for President Bush–she has voted with him 75 percent of the time….” Of course, this poses a basic dilemma when the President will be campaigning for Landrieu’s opponent. Landrieu can run only so far away from her often-liberal voting record; the Republicans have put up a terrific website called SomethingAboutMary.net. I think the only way Landrieu can win this race is if Terrell comes across as not ready for prime time, and that doesn’t seem to be happening.
