    Dick Cheney was raised in Wyoming, went to University in Wyoming, served as an intern for a congressman from Wyoming, served five terms in the US House of Representatives from Wyoming.

    I didn't realize that people in the US were required never to leave a state to seek other opportunities.
    Except for Hillary, and a few others, but that's different, and therefore... okay.

    Good day pg. I've spent a lot of time in Wyoming and other Mountain time zone states since 1973. They don't like carpetbaggers there either. The population centers are on I-80 and I-25, far from Jackson Hole. If they had Utah's caucus primary, I might give her a chance. Her Father once joked of plowing the surrounding mountains into the Yellowstone caldera. I have two western trips coming up, the 2nd to Yellowstone in September on the way back from Vegas.

    Good afternoon, NIMBY!

    Sounds like you're quite the traveling man! Good for you! Have fun! Life is too short not to! Are you still in New England? It sounded like you enjoyed yourself there.

    There's some wisdom to that, however, the role you describe sounds more suited to the House and not the Senate.

I expect the new demographics and the VRA and CU SCOTUS decisions to continue to drive the dynamics of Senate elections.
    Ah thanks Nimby .....2016. I misunderstood. I thought ya was talking for 2014.

    Hiya, polgara. I miss Mangas, too.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.
