Kiss of Death: Obama To Campaign for Reid

First Obama jetted off to the New Jersey and Virginia Governor's races, then to Massachusetts for Mahtha Coakley, now this:

President Obama will appear with politically embattled Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) in Las Vegas next month, according to a White House official.

While it is not clear whether the appearance will be overtly political, any appearance by the president in Reid’s home state is likely to be seen as an effort to buck up Reid’s re-election effort.

Now with Chris Dodd out, and Harry Reid on the ropes in Nevada (due partly to an extremely strong tea party movement), we can only hope that Obama considers campaigning for "Shmucky" Chuck Schumer of New York and gives that smug jerk the kiss of death as well. Is there a miracle in store in 2010 that three of the slimiest Democrats in the Senate could be out in the same year? This Obama guy might not be such a bad fellow after all...
