  •  are there any viable Democrats (0+ / 0-)

    for statewide office in South Carolina any more? Despite a post on this site yesterday hinting that Nikki Haley may be vulnerable (theoretically, according to polling, that is), it's hard for me to see a path to victory for any statewide Democratic candidate in this state anytime soon, barring a complete mishandling of the naming of DeMint's replacement, followed by a complete implosion by said replacement. And, even under those circumstances, it's hard to see how any Democrat could win statewide office in S.C. anytime soon.

    Ernest Hollings seems to have been the last sane, viable statewide candidate for Democrats (viable, in terms of actual electability, that is, not credibility).
