    So after taking Kennedy's seat, it now looks like there's a good chance that the GOP will take not only Biden's seat, but Obama's seat and Hillary's seat. Only the former looks certain though.

    Re: Vice president's son decides not to run for Senate

    beau obviously measured massachusetts and found himself wanting

    his seat is now ours

    like reid's, michael bennett's in colorado, ms lincoln's in arkansas, specter's in PN, dorgan's in ND---as good as in the bag

    within reach are boxer in CA, gillibrand in NY, burris (obama's seat) in IL, nelson's spot in FL, evan bayh in IN

    if massachusetts can go red anyone can

    Re: Vice president's son decides not to run for Senate

    Thank you for your charming inquiry. The fact is that my post was truncated by a dying laptop battery.

    My take on this news article is simply the obvious point that any serious pol with a functional mentality is now almost certain to flee the suicidal Democrat Party.

    The interesting point in this case is that the father has helped to limit the political career of the son, by spouting nonsense.

The right eats up all type of silly connections on what a person's values are regardless of what the circumstances are. It is how Bush won against Dukakis in '88. "Willie Horton" anyone?
    You did know that the Willie Horton issue was first brought up in a Democrat ad, right?

    Isnt he a JAG? To me being in the military is a much better career than joining the filth that is Washington DC.
