Jerry Meek's request for ideas about candidates to take on our very senior senator in 2008 got covered today by the News and Observer. Also included was a sidebar excerpting some of the comments he got in response. Such stories often bring new people to our site - and if you're one of them, welcome!

But one thing many of us DO agree on is a comment made by Republican consultant Mark Stephens in the N&O article.
"Regarding [Meek's] concern about whether Elizabeth Dole is going to run or not, she is going to run and never thought otherwise. She will take on all comers. America is a great country."
America is indeed a great country, despite the enormous damage done by Senator Dole and the Party of Greed in Washington over the past few years.
We hope she runs too.
