Sestak Vs. Toomey
Where: Muhlenberg College
Over: Healthcare reform
As the two challengers spar the old guy with the belt (and the job) stays in training.
Prediction: In his hometown, Toomey will wipe the floor with Sestak. But it doesn't matter. Sestak is simply looking to get his name and face out there so that when he gets his title shot against Specter next Spring, he's ready. If he wins that, he'll have a very good chance against Toomey in a statewide rematch.
By then unpopular Healthcare reform will be a thing of the past. It will either have passed in a more acceptable form or have been defeated. Either way, a year from now, the main issue will once again be the economy. If things are better, Sestak will have a strong edge. (That is if he can knock off Specter.) If not, Toomey will have a slight one.
UPDATE: A preview of tomorrow's debate today (courtesy of Alex Rose.) Round one went to Toomey and the crowd. But give Joe credit for staying on his feet. He's keeping his "left" up but it isn't blocking many punches.
