“This is unwise.”


If Vitter has been damaged by his marital infidelity, I’d rather find out in the primary rather than the general. Assuming that Honoré is a solid conservative, as appears to be the case, I have no problem with him running against Vitter and letting the LA GOP primary electorate decide who the nominee should be.

Having an African-American conservative in the Senate would be terrific for many reasons, but in the case of Honoré I’m sure that the media will ignore his African descent and call him a Franco-American whitey (unlike with the Fords of Memphis, Rangel, Obama, etc.).

He hasn’t been damaged enough, since that would’ve been reflected in potential matchups with Jay Dardenne (let alone Melancon). I’m worried that Vitter comes out of this primary damaged enough by a substantial candidate like Honoré that the Dems won’t have to do the dirty work for the fall general. He’s one of our best voting members, period, and that’s why removing him or an ugly primary is the last thing we need at this point, especially when we’re down to 40 members. It’s Landrieu that needs removing, or going after the Melancon open seat. Vitter needs to be left alone here.

I never heard of this gentleman before. He sounds like he would have been an ideal opponent for Landrieu last year rather than party switcher Kennedy.
