vitter angelle 3Why didn't David Vitter get out the vote, given his resources and execution, this past Saturday, election day?  Can David Vitter continue his normal plan, to link his opponent to Obama?  Can Jon Bel Edwards convince the electorate that he is a different type of democrat?  Does Vitter have enough votes among those in the core-conservative voters, or will he need to moderate to peel off enough voters from his former opponents?

Emanuel is an oncologist, a bioethicist, and a vice provost of the University, and is the author or editor of 10 books, includingReinventing American Health Care.
