    race, so Cochran wouldn't have had to extend himself much out of the R base.  The R-base dynamics this time are obviously entirely different--that's the only reason we're talking about this senate race now, past the primary.  Cochran won that primary, to everyone's surprise, because he made a bring-home-the-pork case that Childers will probably not be able to make, even if he's inclined to (I don't know if he is).  

    However, if Childers does take 90% of the AA vote and it's a reasonable turnout, plus a chunk of white moderates, plus a few McD spite votes, and if half of McD's vote really does stay home...well, things will get interesting.
