Carnahan ducking Blunt . . . and the issues

Today, I was in the car listening to Rep. Roy Blunt on the Mark Reardon Show on KMOX.  (Link here to hear it yourself.)  Blunt referred to a challenge that he has consistently issued to his presumptive opponent in Missouri's 2010 race for the U.S. Senate, Robin Carnahan, since February.  That challenge is, in Blunt's own words, "let's talk about the issues anywhere, anytime, anyplace."  The latest incarnation of the challenge was to have a joint news conference on healthcare tomorrow in front of Carnahan's office in Jefferson City.  But Carnahan has refused, as she's been refusing for months.

Is Carnahan simply ducking Blunt, afraid to face off with him on these issues?  Or is she ducking the issues themselves?  

I think both . . . she's nowhere to be seen.  She's not talking about he issues.  And she's trying to stay out of the public eye.  Why?  Because she's a liberal Democrat . . . and, thankfully, the bloom seems to be coming off that rose nationwide.

Robin . . . if you want to be a U.S. Senator, tell Missourians what you would do if you were sitting in Kit Bond's chair today.  We deserve to know what kind of Senator you would be.
