Anti-Boucher commentary questioned

The Roanoke paper printed this opinion which is that Congressman Boucher has not done much to distinguish himself as a member of Congress, and is not a leader among the Democrats.

I have read elsewhere that part of Boucher's popularity in Southwest Virginia is tied to the fact that he is not a very partisan Democrat, as evidenced by his ditching the national convention (again) this year, and from reading about him on the Internet, he has carved out a leadership position on telecommunications that does draw attention to him in a manner unlike other congressmen.
