I'm looking at the numbers in the Truman-Dewey race and I have concluded that it is a waste to spend any more time or money on Harry Truman.

Instead, I'm devoting the rest of my efforts over this last few days to electing Frank Hook in Michigan over Republican incumbent Senator Homer Ferguson.

Truman is a lost cause at this point. I have seen all the polls (including a Dem internal), and I have to be honest -- Harry is toast.

Flame me if you must, but I think we need to devote ourselves to ousting Ferguson.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
