I was talking with my family tonight about politics. The conversation soon turned to 2008 elections. My response was “what, the current races aren’t exciting enough for you”?
But I went ahead with the 2008 discussion and realized people in Georgia seem to forget there will be a Democratic challenger to Sen. Chambliss, instead focusing on the presidency (Giulliani losing because Americans will never elect another Catholic president, meaning I’ll never be prez, unless I convert. Probably better for all of us if I don’t become president).
For what it is worth, I think it will be Cathy Cox vs Cynthia McKinney to challenge “the Sax”.
CC proved she can raise money and compete state wide. But most important, CC will be one of the few eligible candidates in the GA Democratic Party. Plus, its obvious CC wants to do more politically.
CM will be tired of the “little leagues” of the US Congress (and losing “her” seat), and say that the Senate is her calling. White Republican J-E-W-S crossing over will be blamed for her 80 point loss.
If, and only if, MT can win by saying SP is ineffectual and has not done anything, and Saxby continues to have a less than stellar record, CC takes it in a squeaker.
My thoughts, have at it!
Feel free to discuss ’08 president race and ’10 races too.
