Mark Udall Fears Top of Ticket

The Mark Udall campaign admitted in the Rocky Mountain News today that some Democrat Presidential candidates would be a "hard-sell" in Colorado:

Alan Salazar, Udall's longtime chief of staff, won't talk about the specific presidential candidates. But he admits he does worry that the person at the top of the ticket might be a hard-sell in independent-minded Colorado, prompting Udall to work that much harder to distinguish himself.

The choice of the word "distinguish" is very interesting. It is politic speak for "distance," or "run away from."
