    His shellacking by Ernie Fletcher back in 2003 makes me leery of that prospect.

    Ad hoc, ad loc and quid pro quo! So little time, so much to know!

      he is a very strong candidate. Believe it or not Fletcher was a top tier opponent back then, and it was not a shellacking, it was narrow. Plus he has since won in a very conservative CD, including in 2010. He would likely have won by a bigger margin than Beshear had he made the plunge in 2007 and shouldn't have any problem in 2015 if he wants it.
