As noted below, Georgia Democrats are quite excited about Michelle Nunn, the daughter of former senator Sam Nunn, as their standard-bearer in this year’s Senate race. Apparently Nunn will run this year attempting to have no position on Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act. After being asked whether she would have voted for Obamacare, Nunn responds, “I wished that we had more people who had tried to architect a bipartisan legislation. . . . I think it’s impossible to look back retrospectively and say what would you have done if you were there.”
Let’s put aside her attempt to turn “architect” into a verb.
We’ll see if Michelle Nunn is any better on the trail. But for now, she’s using the same playbook that Colbert Bush used — and lost using.
UPDATE: Dave Weigel notes that Nunn’s fuller answer to the MSNBC did offer a bit more detail, suggesting adding “a tax credit for small businesses. And I also think we need to repeal the cuts to rural hospitals as a result of our state not expanding Medicaid.” He concludes, “In short, Nunn did dodge the question. But she went into some practiced detail about the ways she wanted to change the law, and she confirmed that she wouldn’t vote for repeal.”
