Comedy Central's Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have announced that they will hold dueling rallies on the National Mall next month -- but their plans have been met with mixed reactions by Democratic strategists in the run-up to this fall's election.

The Oct. 30 rallies, conceived as the left's answer to conservative commentator Glenn Beck's "Restoring Honor" rally last month, have the goal of mobilizing Democrats ahead of the November midterms.

But some Democrats are worried that the rallies will take voters away from get-out-the-vote efforts in key states in the crucial lead-up to Election Day. Others fret that the events will overshadow a rally already announced by labor unions, slated to take place on the mall Oct. 2.

Will the Stewart/Colbert rallies help or hurt Democrats this fall? Are they a welcome rallying point or an unwelcome distraction? Give us your thoughts below.
