Wow. Still suprised Dudley leads. His main accomplishment or qualification seems to be he is tall....really tall.

But this should be a race DEMS should be winning. Kitzhaber has to really start pointing out that Mr. Dudley is basically an empty basketball suit.

Well he's also run a foundation for diabetic children since 1998. Personally I think Kitzhaber should run on the fact that Dudley's wife's name ALSO being Chris is weirder than Kitzhaber's last name. That's a winning play.

LOL!

When it comes down to it, Kitzhaber has done this job for 8 years and did it well. He would have gotten far more accomplished had he had the Democratic controlled legislature that now exists in the state.

He really needs to hammer on the inexperience angle to dent the aura of Dudley who again is ahead mainly because he was a basketball star and is really really tall.

It sounds to me like Dudley has had more executive experience than Obama had during his run for President.

Kitzhaber accomplished nothing as Governor. He was disengaged and aloof most of the time. All of his big legislative accomplishments came when he was Senate President. He was difficult for even the D's to work with when he was Governor.
