5. I do not understand why this would surprise anyone.
As I have mentioned previously, chafee winning his primary was all about kicking laffey (and the obnoxious club for growth)to the curb. It has little to do with november.

Chaffe has the most difficult job possible, demonstrating why he should be returned to washington in spite of the fact that he's a republican, in a state where bush's poll numbers are consistantly the lowest in the nation. No one, NO ONE wants bush stopped more than the people of RI, and Chafee (for all his independance) can not disentangle himself from the 'R' on the end of his name.
