A rollicking ride with Claire McCaskill

Hurtling across the state in her generously equipped campaign motor home, Claire McCaskill is informed of a massive beetle crawling on her shoulder. She promptly flicks it off, locates it on the floor of the rattling vehicle and stomps it to death.

The moment is a perfect crystallization of the Democratic senator’s persona — and her advantages and disadvantages in one of the most hard-fought Senate races in the country this year. She’s a longtime politician with a posh condo and a private plane. But she also has a light “Missour-uh” twang, exudes a down-home style — and is more than willing to engage in vicious political combat.
