      I'm thinking my Draft-Clooney movement might be a one-woman campaign.

      Hmm.

        that brings up questions:

        Do you WANT it to remain one woman?

        What are you drafting him for?

        Just teasing.

        race in Northern KY in 2004.  Nick Clooney anchored the news in Cincinnati for years, so he was very well-know in the area.

        Although George was born in Lexington, he grew up in the Northern Kentucky suburbs of Cincinnati.

        As much as we may like George Clooney, both as an actor and a political activist, Mitch McConnell would love to run against Clooney.  It would virtually assure another term for Mitch.

        •  Nick Clooney was butchered in a bad year (0+ / 0-)

          That said,  I think Stumbo or Horne is the man.  Probably Stumbo.  It should be a strong Dem year, even in Kentucky with a new Blue governor and control of most state offices.

          One of these guys should go for it--We are on our way back in Kentucky and it is time to fight, not sit by and let Mitch waltz back to Washington.

          What rough beast, its hour come round at last/Slouches toward Bethlehem waiting to be born?

            back in KY.  There is no reason on earth that Shrub got 60% of the vote in KY in 2004.

            Although I grew up in and still live in the Cleveland suburbs, both of my parents were born in Kentucky.  I still have lots of relatives in Muhlenberg County in western KY, whom I visit regularly, which I am proud to say gave Beasher over 70% of the vote.  I also went to grad. school at the University of Kentucky.  So, I've always remained interested in KY politics.

            If the Dems nominate a half-way decent candidate, he/she will have the money to match Mitch.  If nothing else, it will be fun to watch Mitch tied down in his home state, unable to help other Repubs, donate to other Repub candidates and probably sucking money out of the NRSCC and the RNC.  

            Unless it looks like Mitch is a goner pretty early, the Repub national establishment will pull out all of the stops to prevent the embarrassing defeat of Mitch McConnell.  And the more they spend on Mitch, the less they can spend elsewhere.
