At this point in the race, one can clearly observe that it is not Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman who might play spoiler to Scozzafava -- but Scozzafava who might play spoiler to Hoffman. And that is a very real possibility. A Democrat may well win this race.
For the good of the Republican Party, Scozzafava should end her candidacy today. Her past positions -- as well as current ambiguity over her position on current issues like card check -- have rendered her simply unelectable.
Had she run a competent campaign, this would be a harder call to make -- even for conservatives. But Scozzafava's liberal ideology, coupled with her horrific campaign, have conspired to make her the potential spoiler.
Stepping aside would be a commendable move and would allow Republicans to coalesce around Doug Hoffman, who, by the way, can win.
Dede should bow out today.
