      He could indeed be pretty formidable. Would be a Liz Warren type candidate--his advantage would be a national fund raising base and huge enthusiasm among the base.

          Obviously Carter would have to run a campaign that is significantly to the right of Warren's. I meant it more as something that would be analogous in a state like Georgia. Along the gradient of potential Democratic campaigns in Massachusetts, Warren ran one that focused less on crossover appeal and more on base enthusiasm. Among the gradient of potential Democratic campaigns in Georgia, I imagine that Carter would do something similar, while someone like Barrow or Baker would do the opposite.

        Not the one who exposed Romney's video.

          I don't think it's that far of a reach to assume that someone young and with the last name "Carter" would generate a lot of support from nationwide donors, regardless of the extent of his participation in the 2012 election.
