Bad Ideas (for a Democratic Candidate).

Frank T. Caprio, the Democratic nominee for governor in Rhode Island, hasn't received President Obama's support, and doesn't really want it anyway:

“He could take his endorsement and really shove it, as far as I’m concerned,” said Frank T. Caprio, who is locked in a three-way race that includes former senator Lincoln Chafee, who is running as an independent.

I'm sure this will play really well with voters in the state. After all, they only gave Obama a 28-point margin in 2008. I'm sure they'll come flocking to him once they see he doesn't like the president very much.
