Kagen ready to campaign on his record

As far as I know Congressman Steve Kagen hasn't actually announced that he will seek re-election, so this item in the Post-Crescent caught my eye:
During his weekly conference call, Kagen told reporters that while he has given little attention to campaign politics, his vote on the reform bill was “something I’ll be happy to campaign on at the appropriate time, and I will fight my heart out to see that these reforms we fought so hard for aren’t taken away.”
Kagen has a reputation for immunity to the desires of his constituents, so it will be easy for any of his opponents to demonstrate just how out of touch he is with many of the people in WI-8. Obviously on health care, but I predict his cap and trade vote will be just as big an issue.

Did you see Lakeshore Laments tonight?

You mean how the provision covering children with pre-existing conditions won't go into affect right away as promised?

Yeah I saw it.

I really liked the line from the NRCC that Kagen "should be looking for a new job"
