    I wish we had a decent candidate to run against Corker.  Polls show only a 3 point gap.  It would be nice to have an unexpected win there.  Only problem is, I haven't heard anything good about Mark Clayton.

      democratic party has been absolutely horrific ever since they lost the majority in the senate and house. They don't even try anymore. The very idea that we didn't run a credible candidate for governor in 2010 right on the back of a very popular democratic governor's back is absurd to me. That Corker almost lost, and may have lost if it wasn't for just what a bad candidate Harold Ford Jr. was, and we can't at least put someone halfway decent up against him. UGH.

        To chase Kim McMillan out of the governor's race, the party was seriously damged.

        So I see only tatters of clearness through a pervading obscurity - Annie Dillard -6.88, -5.33
