Backhanded compliment for Kay out of Diboll...

The Diboll paper has a line about Kay in their editorial about Arlen Specter that Kay's team has to be scratching their heads over (link). Is it good, or is it bad? It's definitely meant as a compliment, but it does play into her problems among the base compared to the general population...
Specter has something in common with Kay Bailey Hutchison of Texas - he's more popular with the electorate as a whole than with the hard-core activists in his own party.
The Texas Governor's race will be decided in the GOP primary. Will Kay be able to attract enough independents and new voters to counteract the strongly conservative and strongly pro life base of the Republican Party.

Hey now, campaign characters. Be nice. I know a lot of you on both sides, so I don't want any overly foul language, personal attacks on anyone other than the candidates themselves, or other party fouls. I will moderate the heck out of you if you start breaking the bounds of civility.
