Blanche Lincoln faces a runoff

Early yesterday, Blanche Lincoln was asked how she felt if she ended up in a runoff. Here is what she said: 
Lincoln said she’d be “ecstatic one way or the other, whether we win right out or whether we go to a runoff.”
As the old saying goes, be careful what you wish for, you may just get it. And get it she did. Lincoln now faces a runoff with ultra lefty Bill Halter on June 8th.  It all seems pretty hopeless, because Republican John Boozman has both of them beat in the polls. Lincoln, like many blue dogs, has found herself feeling the wrath from both sides of the aisle. Conservatives won’t support her again after failing to stop ObamaCare in its infancy and the left will not support her for now trying to act like a conservative.

Considering the outlook for Lincoln, her best bet would be to resign and save herself a whole lot of hassle between now and November.
