Nobody survives The Curse

Welcome to Oregon, where even the most down-in-the-polls politicians apparently have a shot at electoral success ...

Or as one Democratic insider put it Wednesday morning: "If you had told me last summer that a sitting governor with a 32 percent approval rating would propose four new taxes - and not only win re-election, but win by a margin of 10 percent or more - I'd have said you were nuts." ... Well, of course we're nuts. But it couldn't have happened without a lot of help from the opposition, either. The more Saxton ran, it seemed, the worse he got ...

And then there's the Curse of The Oregonian endorsement, which nobody, but nobody, survives.
