    like PPP's.  

    If I were Dardeene I'd run for Governor instead though.  First of all it sounds like he wants it a lot more.  Also I think his chances are better.  I think that unless there's a strong Democratic candidate for Governor, Dardenne will probably consolidate enough Democratic voters to earn a runoff spot against Vitter.  If Dardenne holds onto Dems and gets a good portion of indies and GOPers he wins.  By contrast, against Landrieu he could get squeezed out of the general election if she takes most Dems and a more conservative candidate takes most GOPers.  Also a straight fight with Landrieu will be pretty tough.

    Obviously nothing's guaranteed.  If a well known Dem runs for Governor in 2015 Dardeene could have the same problem.  Still, if you're looking at two potentially tough elections, you may as well run for the job you want.

    23, male, CA-18 (home and voting there), LA-01 (college).
