    It would be one thing to say that an up-and-comer in Georgia ought to wait for a few years for the blue trend to accelerate.

    But there's no sign that WV will trend that way. It's possible that Obama has a sui generis lack of appeal there and that someone like Hillary Clinton or a more generic D like Hickenlooper would do 10 points better just by not being Obama. But there's no point of waiting to move up for a Dem in WV. Our glory days in the state are over. It's still winnable federally below the presidential level. That might or might not continue. Tennant is right to take the odds now.

    •  Yeah, I just have this uncanny sense of caution. (0+ / 0-)

      •  It happened in KY-Sen too (0+ / 0-)

        I really wanted her to run and when she did, I worried about the ramifications and potential for fallout.
