What does Arkansas have to be ashamed of?
in retrospect, Bill is small potatoes compared to Barack
You don’t understand Arkansas. They still have the one party system. A majority of Arkansans are still Democrats because of Abe Lincoln. I imagine it is changing but for the average middle of the road Arkansan, the fact that the Democrats put one of their own in the White House kept the GOP from making the gains their that they made in the rest of the South in the 90s.
Arkansas also is more rural than other southern states and while Arkansas has a sizeable black population, most of them are not in contact with most of the states white population and that leads to continued Democrat loyalty among whites that you don’t see in parts of the south that have higher minority population.
That Lincoln is in trouble at all has to do with Obama and health care only. Without both of those, she’d be coasting as it simply remains a one party state.

The fact that this bill funds abortion must hurt him.
Pryor was elected in ‘08.
