    term limited). Was a GOP state senator before switching parties in 2007. Might be vulnerable to a primary challenge by a better Democrat. Would be vulnerable to any "respectable" less-than-nutjob Republican (a la Jim Talent).

    Don't think he's that liked among Mo. Democrats.

      Missouri has so many right wingnuts that we are always a few votes off of electing outright insanity.  

      I see Jay Nixon as straight forward, reasonable, less tied to money than many others and he keeps his head down, stays out of the controversial spot lights as much as possible. He picks his battles against our General Assembly which is well populated with Tea Party extremists.

      I have respect for Governor Nixon and view him as probably doing the best job under the circumstances.
