  •  No white Mississippi Democrat (9+ / 0-)

    can win EXCEPT as a Blue Dog.  Democrats in Mississippi need to vote for him in November.  Don't forget: Cochran is 76 and wanted to retire, but was talked into running one more time to keep his seat away from McDaniel.

    Who's to say Cochran may step down before this term is ended?  If the governor appoints his successor, it's going to be a VERY conservative Repug because that's what the governor is.

    •  Not necessarily-- (0+ / 0-)

      A-As and Latinos comprise nearly 1/2 the population. Gather in a decent percentage of women and you have the basis for a very liberal base on many issues.

      "Lone catch of the moon, the roots of the sigh of an idea there will be the outcome may be why?"--from a spam diary entitled "The Vast World."
