    Perhaps we’re ready for the long promised poll of Republican Governor hopefuls for 2010, because this whole presidential primary stuff is so last year…

    Total non-denial denial. Why on earth would he want to remain a junior senator in a Dem-controlled Senate, with a Dem-controlled House, and possibly a Democrat in the White House? If he stepped into the Governor’s race, it would be over before it began.

    Sounds like a much better way to close out your political career than spending another term in the minority getting pushed around by Democrats.

    Wow, this is a slow day!

    You posted a link to a column that is based on something that appeared in another story.

    How about this question? Who the hell is Karl Rove going to work for?

    Rove will take one for the team and reluctantly settle for easy, easy money on the GOP rubber chicken circuit for the next year-and-a-half. He’s the crazy aunt locked in the basement until election season is over.

    Book Deal – $$$
    Speaking Circuit – $$$
    Campaign Consulting – $$$

    Love him or hate him, we’re going to see a lot more Karl Rove than we have been.

    I suggested that he would come bac and run for Governor many months ago before the rumors even started. I agree that if he runs it is close to a sure thing. However, the reason I want to see him run more than anyother is because we have too many eager Republicans in this state who are dying to move up in the system. I don’t blame them for doing so. What I do have a problem with is when an office like this opens up we have all of our top candidates in the race and then we ipen those hard earned seats to anyone else, including the Dems. If we are not careful we can easily lose the majority we have gained and go right back in to the minority. If Isakson is in then I think the others will stay out. If he does not run then expect to see Cagle, Handel, Richardson, Keen, and others fighting it out.

  7. Icarus says:

    Mike,

    You’re going to have almost the same people fighting for either Gov or Senate. Isakson can only hold one of the two. The other one that is open will attract a crowd. This will open up seats in Congress and leadership positions in the state houses.

    Open seats at the top always guarantee a trickle down effect.

    I’m not sure Sonny could even be considered a favorite in that race, and he certainly would be opposed in a primary.
