    but I have written off Georgia's state politics as a hopeless cause.  The state is controlled by a bunch of right wingers who are long on talk and short on compassion.  

    Yes, I vote, but that's about all I do.  National elections mean more to me at this point.  However, with demographic changes, Georgia could soon be in play for Democrats in presidential and statewide elections.  When it comes to the state legislature, I believe that it will be in the grip of Republicans for many elections to come.
