Post-Mortem on Buerkle vs. Maffei

From The Wall Street Journal's Stephen Moore:

Mr. Maffei got desperate in the final weeks of the campaign and used every trick in the liberal playbook to go after her.   The lines of attack included global warming, stem cell research, Social Security privatization and her Sarah Palin connections. None of it worked. . . . Mr. Maffei thought he would win because the Republican Party had moved "so far to the right."   In the end, Ms. Buerkle won because the Democrats had moved so far to the left.
