  •  He isn't awful by any means (0+ / 0-)

    but neither are most center-right Rs (there aren't many of them left, almost all of the Rs today are either conservatives or far right teabaggers).  They're just a whole lot more conservative than me.

    And no Manchin couldn't easily become an R without moving more to the right, and/or facing a major primary challenge.  Grimes/Tennant/Nunn would get killed in a R primary.  (And they are to the left of Manchin).

    I agree with your big tent perspective.  But I'm going to call a spade a spade.  Manchin is a center-right R and that is the best we're going to do from West Virginia now.  Tennant is to the left of him and will lose handily.
