    Fellow Georgian here, and I desperately want to see anything Presidential or Senatorial related in our state turn blue.  It's not happening for a while, though.  "Slightly left of Kentucky" is spot on, and while the despicable Chambliss (there should be a spot in hell for him for his anti-Cleland ad) may lose his seat in a primary, there is no way in hell a Dem takes this seat, particularly in a mid-term.

    Georgia is tailor made for the GOP playbook: scream to the rafters that you're a Christian, rattle your saber, scare the electorate into believing that Dems will raise your taxes, blow your racist dog whistle, and that's all she wrote.  Whether it's Chambliss, Handel, or some other thug, it will work.

    I'm so sick of these assholes in my state...and the politicians they vote for:).

      Democratic potentials from running:

      "there is no way in hell a Dem takes this seat."

      I worked for Martin, and spoke to him at a function. Frankly, he didn't have much of a public face or -- for lack of a better word -- aura of a successful politician. He came off dull every time I saw him.

      If the Dems put up a strong candidate after the Republican primaries, and can put up a strong campaign, it might just be possible.

      I haven't heard any whispers about who might run for the Democrats -- has anyone heard anything?

      It's not just a zip code, it's an attitude.
