I so often disagree with posts at the New Majority I might as well highlight one I think is basically on the mark. But I must say I’m always amused when someone holds up Christine Todd Whitman as an example of how Republicans can succeed. Whitman’s claim to fame is losing a 1990 Senate race against Bill Bradley by a smaller margin than expected, winning the 1993 New Jersey gubernatorial race by one percentage point, and beating Jim McGreevey to win re-election by 47 percent to 46 percent — again, a single percentage point. She never carried the women’s vote and Republicans haven’t won the governorship since. That only looks like an impressive track record if you’ve spent too much time hanging around the 2008 McCain campaign.
