    people were running campaign for themselves, Thune was raising money for his 2012 bid, taking some serious meetings with key players in the money circuit and seriously thinking about a run.  He has already serious creed with the Christian right (moral majority and all that crowd) and he seriously campaigned for the House tea-party candidates. He covered himself from all sides

    I think he has seriously been thinking about it and what happened last night would surely help...

    Don't give a damn a/t each & every politician currently alive in the US. Last time i voted for the top part of the ballot was 1972. Never missed SB election

      You've missed that many votes? Seriously?

      They tortured people to get false confessions to fraudulently justify our invading Iraq.

          that "one" vote turns into hundreds or thousands.

          Al Franken won his seat by what, 200 something votes?  If 200 of his voters had instead held the "it's just one vote" philosophy, we'd be looking at Senator Coleman.

          To assume to know how close any given election will be is to make claims of psychic powers.

          •  I am not in that states. And the probablity that (0+ / 0-)

            my vote tips an election is worse than the probably of winning the lottery. I calculated it.

            No, it is not about psychic power, it is about putting variables in models and getting a reading with a certain margin of error. That's it. Nothing magical about that.

    •  Nah, I dont think so (0+ / 0-)

      I've already heard conservatives complaining about his TARP vote.

      •  Oh it's amazing how several endorsements from (0+ / 0-)

        key players and then a nice warm embrace from the Christian right would do to all those conservatives. Moreover, are we talking about the same conservatives who were going to stay away on election day 2008? Because they turned out and voted. And having a serious war chest usually does miracles.

        •  I'm talking about him winning a primary (0+ / 0-)

          I cant see that happening. He might be VP. I dont see a senator as the GOP nominee, and not one who voted for TARP.

          •  If he runs, it is his. He has the clearest route (0+ / 0-)

            to the nomination. From Iowa to SC and then in that big Tuesday, he can take big states and get the nomination. As for the conservatives, they really listen to orders.

              Huckabee, to me, is better positioned. Huckabee already won IA last time, and the social conservative like him. I think if Huckabee runs, he wins the nomination.
