Iowa Progress: What Boswell's win means

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Progress

More than a week after the primary, it's time to put Leonard Boswell's
victory over Ed Fallon into perspective. While the Fallon campaign is
claiming "a partial victory," the facts don't bear out the silver
lining that Fallon is trying to discern from his defeat. (Although
after such a devastating loss, one certainly can understand while
Fallon is looking for a silver lining). Fallon seems to think that his
primarying Boswell was the reason Leonard Boswell's voting record
suddenly improved in 2007. However, Fallon didn't have anything to do
with it. Nancy Pelosi did. Democrats taking control of the House of
Representatives meant that Republicans weren't able to bring bills up
that would place Democrats in swing districts like Boswell in tough
positions.
