  •  Mourdock v Donnelly in Indiana (14+ / 0-)

    I wish I could add one more criteria to your excellent analysis: the crazy factor!

    Richard Mourdock is the teabagger who primaried Richard Lugar from the right. Joe Donnelly, is a moderate Dem running against him for Senate.

    The Obama campaign is MIA in the state this year, so Mourdock stands a chance of winning simply because the Republicans are keeping him out of the spotlight by sandwiching him in between Mike Pence (R for governor) and Susan Brooks (R running for Dan Burton's Congressional seat).

    Because Obama isn't active in Indiana in 2012 the Rs are not being forced to own the crazy.  With more money and support Donnelly could take this election.
