      depends why they're voting for Murkowski.  If they're voting for Miller because theyre against TEH BIG GOVERNMENT, I don't find it very likely that they'll vote for McAdams over Murkowski.

      If they're voting for McAdams simply because they don't like Murkowski, then they might have a better chance of voting for McAdams

      many of them are abortion-obsessed, who loathe her.

    •  Uh, how do you contrive that? (0+ / 0-)

      Right now, McAdams votes are going to Murkowski because they're afraid of Miller. There aren't any McAdams or Murkowski votes going to Miller because they're afraid of either Murkowski or McAdams. People voting for Miller are either voting FOR Miller or AGAINST Murkowski. Not a lot of hedging there.

      This was my understanding of the comparison you were making:

      Lieberman=Miller
      Murkowski=mythical moderate Republican
      McAdams=Lamont

      I'm saying that there's no real difference between Miller and Murkowski (their voting records will be straightline GOP), so I may as well vote my conscience.
