Christine O’Donnell’s nomination is HISTORIC because if she wins, she will be the first female Senator from Delaware. Ever.
This is big and HISTORIC. Which should guarantee overwhelmingly favorable mainstream media coverage. Because we are not allowed to be against HISTORIC candidates, particularly one who will break the glass ceiling.

Because Christine O’Donnell may be a HISTORIC candidate but she is not a HISTORIC Democratic candidate, like Martha Coakley.

Unfortunately, such mainstream media treatment of conservative women is not HISTORIC.
