Is this why I got shellacked?

Since I wasn’t a professional politician, and didn’t consult the “professional” campaign types- I talked about issues and ideas. Apparently, “Policy is bad for candidates” especially specifics:

More Than Words: Moving Forward On Iraq With Our Congressional Candidates | Buckeye State Blog
Speaking on Saturday, Burner acknowledged that this path is completely against what everyone in politics has recommended for the candidates. Policy is bad for candidates – and generally if you’re running for office you’re not supposed to talk about specifics. However, Burner, and the other folkss that have signed onto this effort believe that so little progress on Iraq has been made that it’s time to throw conventional wisdom out the window and everyone that can should push to change the dialogue.

It’s too bad- because I like to be an informed consumer of anything. Now we’re stuck with candidates who talk in circles.
