  •  Elect Another Southern Governor? R U Kidding Me? (0+ / 0-)

    Carter? Clinton? Bush?  I'm sorry, Americans are sick of Southern Governors.  Barbour never stood a chance in hell.  I don't give a damn about political persuasions on this one.  We need to find a better breeding ground for future Presidents.

    Show me a politician that doesn't want to gain, and/or hold onto power, and I'll show you one who can't get elected.

      I don't see Democrats ever nominating another Southerner in the foreseeable future mainly because there are almost none. And Obama's victory proved that Democrats could win without the South by focusing on locking down the industrial Midwest and the West.

      The GOP is very likely to select candidates from the South as it is now their base.  But these candidates will likely be judged to conservative for most in the nation.
