One exception exists, however. Last year, after they recruited him into the race, state and national Democratic party leaders turned against Paul Hackett, preferring the more conventional Sherrod Brown, a central Ohio congressman. Hackett eventually dropped his Senate run, but it's clear that Brown's liberal House record makes him a far less appealing statewide possibility than the anti-gun control, Gulf War veteran Hackett. It would be most ironic if a flawed decision by party leaders wound up costing the Democrats a chance to win the Senate.
