  •  Well since she's tipped her hand with the AG, (0+ / 0-)

    we'll see how ridiculous that scenario is.  Like D'Amboise, LePage was a relative unkown and he'll rally the Teabaggers like LePage did in the primary.  Remember that LePage blew the field out of the water, including Collins' CoS, Abbott.  

    Also remember that the Tea Party guy this cycle would have been facing off with Snowe one to one, and not in a broad field like the '10 Gov primary.  He would have actually, given Snowe's relative moderate status, been able to rally the wingnuts to an even greater degree that he will against Schneider, who is a military guy.  

    I never said it was the same.  But there are enough dynamics that are similar that I think the analysis is apt.
