DEwind: The Week That Was November 17th

This past week has been a little slow on the Delaware news as blogged by Delaware bloggers. We’ve had the stories that guessed who would suceed Biden as Senator, even a plea for Beau not to to Iraq and another to say he should and Beau saying he’s not interested in his dad’s seat.

I remember like it was yesterday when Dave Burris said that John Clatworthy could be using FLS Connect for something other than Robo Calls.

Tommywonk wrote yesterday about Clatworthy’s negative campaigning: I don’t think I’m too sensitive when it comes to rugged campaigning.
