-Senator Claire McCaskill's victory over right-winger Todd Akin had to be bitter sweet. Her mother Betty Anne McCaskill (see below on right) passed away the week before the election.

Six years ago I had the privileged to campaign with Ms. Betty Anne and she was an amazing personality and had brilliant political mind.
