Win-Win for NY Conservatives, Doug Hoffman?

The closely watched special election in NY-23 pits a Democrat against a liberal Republican, as well as conservative candidate, Doug Hoffman. Hoffman recently won the endorsements of Fred Thompson, Tim Pawlenty, Sarah Palin, Rick Santorum and others. See Hoffman's personal appeal here.

But even if Hoffman loses and the Democrat Owens wins, Hoffman has already made a key point - Republicans cannot win if they try to be Democrat-lite. Scozzafava supports card check, abortion, the Obama porkulus, (and likely Obamacare) who really cares if she has a 'D' or an 'R' next to her name?
