Obama Coming to St. Louis for … McCaskill?

Why not Robin Carnahan?

As our friend 24thstate first reported:

Why would Obama come to St Louis for a fundraiser for a Senator not up for reelection until 2012? Why give the money to Claire, when Robin needs it so desperately, and when Russ is scrambling at the last second to bring in cash in the last day of the quarter (or later).

Be sure to read the rest of the post.

It makes sense; Robin Carnahan is desperately trying to position herself as a moderate when her issues are patently left, just like her brother, Rep. Russ Carnahan, who’s snagged the sobriquet “Rubberstamp Russ.”

It also lends credence to my theory that Democrats intend to use McCaskill to draw heat away from the Carnahan Duo.
