Floundering Michelle Nunn refuses to say whether she would have voted for Obamacare

Michelle Nunn was supposed to be a key part of the Democrats’ plan to hold onto the Senate.  Daughter of a popular Georgia Democrat senator, Sam Nunn, she was personable, well-spoken, and attractive.  The prospect of a “historic first” female senator from Georgia was supposed to add a margin of female votes that could push her to victory.

But, as even the New York Times admits (“Michelle Nunn’s Hopes in Georgia Are Fading in Final Stretch”), the magic isn’t working.  And in the final Georgia Senate debate, she employed the same strategy that is making other Democrats look bad: refusing to answer a question about her support for Obama or his signature program, Obamacare.  Here is C-SPAN’s video (hat tip: WFB)  

Losses by Nunn and other candidates who refuse to answer questions about how they voted on Obama, or how they would have handled his major actions, might well persuade more Democrats, worried about their own future careers, to openly repudiate the disastrous 44th president of the United States.  We face a very perilous two years ahead with Obama at the helm.  I have long figured that the GOP would not want to impeach him, no matter how egregiously he behaved.  The only possibility for such a move would be if Democrats wanted it, in order to save their own hides.  It is still highly unlikely.  But the possibility exists that Democrats will turn on him, and that could yield all sorts of interesting political possibilities.
