Why Isn't Mark Udall Moving Right?

If Mark Udall loses the premier Senate campaign in the nation, it will likely be because of a stubborn refusal to move to the center on any issue of importance.

Today, Reuters indirectly provides insight into why Mark Udall is running an unreconstructed flaming liberal campaign:

1. Left Wing Bloggers dominate the blogosphere and provide easy access to money and manpower resources. The price of accepting those resources is that candidates like Udall cannot afford to appear moderate, especially in an expensive campaign.

2. The left will ignore good news on the war. Left leaning candidates must do the same.

3. "Some liberals are so confident about Democratic prospects that they contend the centrism that vaulted Democrats to victory in the 1990s no longer matters,"
