    I wouldn't call that a race.

      It's a race.   You're talking to someone who lives in a state where house members ran unopposed.  That's not a race.

        You are correct on the status of unopposed elections.  

        But I can't shake the view that this whole contest was a waste of time from the Democratic point of view, and that became quite clear to me several weeks ago when Colbert-Busch trashed Obama's budget because it was too liberal.  More tax cuts, less spending, oh but don't touch Social Security.  

        I'm just disgusted with that kind of hackery.  It's dishonest, it's foolish, it's shortsighted, and it has no place alongside Democratic Party values.  Indeed, there are already too many "Democrats" who share Elizabeth Colbert Busch's "values", and that's really at the heart of the Democrats' problems.
