New question in Texas: Can Wendy Davis survive defeat? http://t.co/3iKSYzkJXP

I’m guessing that the consensus is ‘no:’
“[Wendy Davis] does well on TV. That’s a pretty well-tried path for people like her,” said Matt Bennett, former aide to President Bill Clinton and Al Gore and co-founder of the moderate Democratic group Third Way. “That is a path she might be happier on anyway. She of all people knows how tough it is to win in Texas.”
“She’s still a star in Democratic politics,” he added. “It doesn’t matter what Texas thinks of her.”
…By the way: that language above is how to poison the future political career of a problematic candidate on your own side. It’s remarkably elegant, in its way. Not a single open insult in the excerpt; and yet you know that Bennett is providing Davis with the Kiss of Death.
