Just One More Reason . . .

Missouri US Senate candidate Claire McCaskill says that she will accept a blind trust for her own assets if she's elected.

Significantly, however, the same doesn't hold true for her husband's extensive business interests, some of which intersect with issues McCaskill would be handling as a senator.

Right now, she won't release his tax returns -- and that's in the middle of a heated campaign. If she were to become a comfortable incumbent, does anyone think there would be any incentive at all for McCaskill to be transparent about the conflicts of interest for her and her husband?

Please note that Jim Talent now leads in the Zogby/Wall Street Journal polls. Never underestimate the good common sense of the Show Me State.
