Democrats will likely see it as a harbinger of things to come in November as they beat the GOP 13-5 in the Annual Congressional Softball Game at Nationals Park in Washington, DC.
Of course, the Dems have a bigger bench with their large majority in both houses.
This kind of game is one of the lingering manifestations of the notion that America lines up as opposing red and blue teams on opposite foul lines. Most people don't think of things in these terms anymore.
But as long as there is going to be such a game, I am interested in the softball skills of the Rep. Owen's challengers. Our Congressman told the WDT he was prepared to play right field....If so, he may want to reconsider some of his recent votes.
