The Washington Post has an interesting post mortem on Kathleen Kennedy Townsend’s loss to Bob Ehrlich in the Maryland Governor’s race. The article focuses on recriminations among the Democrats; the conflict is principally between those who blame the unpopularity of outgoing Governor Parris Glendening, and those who blame Townsend’s campaign manager and, more broadly, her rather inept campaign. There is almost no reference to issues, and no reference at all to the broader context of the election, which left many disapppointed Democrats in its wake. This is, it seems, the most common Democratic response to their recent defeats: We don’t need to change, we just need to run better campaigns.
