Beyond the presidency are senate and house races across the country - where rabid Republicans are clinging to seats they deserve to lose. In New Hampshire, John Sununu, whose father shilled for the first Bush in the White House, is running against Jeanne Shaheen. Where does Sununu stand on the issues, you ask?
