That’s what Dave Pollak, former NY State Director of the Obama Campaign has to say (just after 6:00 mark) when talking about the Brown win in Mass and whether or not incumbents in general and Dem incumbents in particular might be in danger in November this year. Gretchen Carlson asks him about Obama coming to campaign. Dave Pollak says that he was invited to come campaign for Coakley too late, that he should have been invited weeks earlier, then he says:
But when you talk about the power of incumbency, it sort of reminds me of that scene from Star Wars where Darth Vader chokes the head of the Death Star and says okay now you’re in charge and the guy who’s about to be in charge looks like a total panic, I think that’s what’s going on right now in American politics. The voter is Darth Vader.
