  •  Six year term. (6+ / 0-)

    For him to win in any federal office depends on the correct alignment of the stars and Democrats tearing each other apart.  It's an improbably roll of the dice and he's likely to be tossed out just like before the next time he comes up.  So why not go for the office you don't have to run for every six years instead.  And even better an office where because of stuff like filibusters and holds you have a lot more power to build your profile and increase your chances of getting re-elected.

    An anonymous liberal republican freshman congressman has no power whatsoever.  But one whose vote is needed to break or create filibusters will be in a prime position to become an indispensable for any grand bargains anyone wants to pass.
