    That ain't happening.
    Nor will anyone with chops challenge Cooper.
    Best way would be for Obama to appoint him as ambassador somewhere, and let Nashville pick a new rep.

      I just always hate rewarding dickish behavior.

      Also, thers's a chance that, the prick that he is, he wouldn't accept, because "the work that he's doing in congress to fight the debt crisis is too important" or some such bullshit.

      Is your model of crystal ball available on Amazon Prime, by any chance? I hate paying shipping fees!

        And we collect a hefty sales tax.

        Seriously, who runs? Everyone who has county-wide, progressive appeal would rather be elected mayor in 2015, and would not risk a career by taking on an incumbent congressman.

        I just don't see how anyone does it in August 2014, with no contested races on the ballot, turnout at its lowest, and Republicans free to crossover.

        2016 may be the best chance for a challenger, if  one of term limited council members at large runs (after losing the race for mayor).

        It is easy to say from the outside, harder to do from the inside.
