97. sadly the soft/center left
strategy didn't do so well in 2002 either (think: Georgia, Missouri etc.)

I think it is much bigger than soft or hard right. I think it has to do with talk media (talk radio/pundit tv) that goes after anything (even irrelevancy) about a candidate. Done in a way that amplifies, validates the more extreme and silly attacks on democratic officer holders and candidates. Who could imagine framing war hero Max Cleland, as a traitorous terroris enabler. But they did - and sadly - it worked (or at least contributed to the outcome.)
