"SECOND BETRAYAL": PAUL HACKETT DROPS OUT OF OHIO RACE, SAYS HE WAS PUSHED OFF PLANK BY REID AND SCHUMER 

How much you wanna bet that the Dems got to Cindy Sheehan in the same manner and convinced her not to run against Diane Feinstein?


Iraq war veteran Paul Hackett, who gained popularity for his staunch criticism of President Bush, has dropped out of the Democratic race for U.S. Senate in Ohio, according to a published report.
[...]
"This is an extremely disappointing decision that I feel has been forced on me," Hackett said, noting that Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and New York Sen. Charles Schumer recently had asked him to withdraw.
[...]
"For me, this is a second betrayal," Hackett said. "First, my government misused and mismanaged the military in Iraq, and now my own party is afraid to support candidates like me."
