    if the national mood gets better for DEMS.  Kentucky is actually very Democratic on the state and local level.  In 2007 DEMS nearly swept the state elected offices and in 2008 GOP Minority Leader Mitch McConnell was nearly beat.

    Paul is seen very favorably now but once some of his more extreme views are aired he might be more beatable.  Either DEM could win...Attorney General Jack Conway is more dynamic but is from Louisville while Lt. Gov Mongiardo is from crucial eastern KY but is nearly as unpopular as he is popular.
