I think he or she would do alright, so long as they emphasized bread and butter issues. Most Democratic voters don't care all that much about foreign policy and interventions, so long as it isn't the Republicans doing the interventions. (See: Libya)
Yep; Democrats only care about all them people overseas dying if it's under Bush, Reagan, Ford, Nixon, etc. If it's Obama or Clinton killing thousands overseas, no big deal. That's really one of the main reason's I'm L-FL, seeing the allies of the guy I supported because he said he'd end Iraq line up one after the other to argue for bombing some African nation, and the guys who'd been warmongers for the least 8 years talk about their opposition to that war.
