    she could be in a huge position of power if Democrats keep the Senate. She'll gain the strength that comes from incumbency. Lots of people think the state is trending against us, but even if they are more right than wrong, I don't think it's on its way to becoming Wyoming. Even if the party is still in trouble in the state, she could be more personally popular than she is now. And if the party is stronger, that simply helps her.

    Maybe she does in fact want to become become a national candidate, but I think it's more likely she stays in the Senate and tries to gain influence there.
