McCaskill vs. Talent?

Clair McCaskill would probably be the best Democrat to take on Jim Talent for his senate seat next year. Talent is currently under fifty in his approval rating.

McCaskill garnered 48 percent of the vote in her 2004 bid for governor, despite Kerry-Edwards pulling funding out of Missouri in the last month of the campaign. Perhaps Missourians are regretting not choosing her instead of Matt Blunt, who's approval rating is the fourth worst in the nation.

Given all of this, McCaskill could very well turn this into a top-tier race.
