Sen. Sam Brownback has lifted his hold on the nomination of a prominent abortion-rights supporter to a European diplomatic post.(Previously covered.) The Anti-Sam thinks this may derail his presidential campaign. I'd love to see him get through the primaries, because he'll get spanked in the general. I hated the Democratic obsession with "electability" in the last campaign, but no one can think Brownback will carry Florida, Ohio, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, or even Iowa, let alone Wisconsin, Michigan, Vermont, New Hampshire, or Minnesota.
So please, don't let this derail him just yet.
