The Power Of Bloggers Will Sink Blunt

This is an excellent article by The Hill on the influence that bloggers are having on the race for Majority Leader. It seems that Rep Blunt's strategery to play a four corners offense or a prevent defense to coin some sports analogies is going to in fact prevent him from winning. He is trying to run the clock out, but in the meantime, support for Shadegg and Boehner are growing. I'm not even going to go into the the whole secret ballot procedures because you know that there will be a lot of reps who are going to double cross Mr. Blunt. It always happens in these kind of contested secret leadership elections. I frankly think the race is going come down to whoever comes in second place on the first ballot. If Shadegg can beat Boehner on the first ballot, I think he has an excellent shot to becone ML on the second ballot.
