While we’re talking Herseth Sandlin, let’s take another perspective. Bill Fleming made an interesting comment over at Mount Blogmore when discussing the issue of Stephanie Herseth Sandlin’s return.

Well, Stephanie could run Indy and make sure Kristi loses. Who knows, she might even win that way. (Just thinkin? out loud.)
It’s an interesting idea. (not sure how that hurts Kristi though with Varilek in the race.) No matter how hard Herseth Sandlin tried to please both sides during the last election, she didn’t please anyone. It seems the far left doesn’t like her. Who was hurt more by being aligned with a political party than she was during the last election? Herseth Sandlin has always liked the idea of having an image as someone who crossed party lines to get things done, and this would freely allow her to answer the Pelosi question anyway she chose…
Or this question…
She wouldn’t have to defend the unpopular Democratic party either (this is one of my favorite clips):
What better way to refresh her campaign phrase “an independent voice for South Dakota” than a run as an independent?
