You don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater. Vitter has a strong following in Louisiana and a good conservative voting record. Throwing out a sure conservative for an unknown is foolish politics. I agree with the other poster - let the General cool his heals and go after Landrieu.
I do not know anything about the General, but I would much rather have an X-military leader than the run of the mill attorney we typically get. They invariably make a deal and sell us out in DC.
I would love to see someone X-military officer with balls take Kay Bailey Hutchison’s seat in the Senate for TX.
