Bush bots are bing heard from, the current occupant of the Whitehorse can do no wrong in their eyes, much as the klintoon bots so no wrong with the former occupant of the white house.

She has more experience and more name recognition than any of the other candidates. Martinez looks like a good conservative, but has never won a state-wide election and has limited experience. Katherine Harris is an excellent candidate. Everyone thought the Dems would beat Jeb Bush because of the 2000 election too. The Democrats made it a top priority to defeat Jeb in 2002, but they failed miserably and wasted millions feeding their own hatred. Hate doesn't win elections, but don't tell the Dems that.

Were not talking about current occupants of the White House. We're talking about a woman running for the U.S. Senate.

Tell Mel to move into KH's soon to be vacant congressional district, run, win and wait 18 years. Then he'll be ready.

Actually, her experience pales in comparison to Daniel Webster's. I would have supported her 100% if he were not running.

On the surface, Katherine Harris seems like a stronger candidate then Mel Martinez. Whoever it turns out to be, the GOP must make every effort to take this Senate seat from the Demlibs. The magic number is 60!

The source, who has daily contact with Harris, cautions the congresswoman still could hold back and not make the run.

I see Drudge has left himself an escape hatch.

Uh-OH, looks like its another Arnold vs McClintock FR fight

Why don't some of you people get Hillary to change her party to republican? That way the media would love your candidate, it woukd not energize the dems against your candidate, and all that matter is that your (r) candidate wins...right?

Wow, you bet thanks! What a cutie-pie. 'Cowgirls Rule' (I just bought my 3 yo granddaughter a tee-shirt that says that.

Anyway back to the topic of the thread;

    1) I don't understand the 'ungrateful White House' comment. Why or when was the WH ungrateful? 2) Back in 2000, I found all the comments by the leftist media hacks about her looks and make-up to be patently offensive. I find her an attractive woman for 'her age' - NO offense meant by that. 3) I think she CAN win and WILL make a great Senator. 4) It sure will take some of the spotlight off Hildebeast, aka PIAPS, aka Satan's Daughter, aka Hitlery AND... 5) She will add to getting that minimum magic number of 60 senators to stop the unconstitutional tactics of the demoncRATS(sic). And actually we'll need about 63 or 64 do to the RINO's.

BTW, just to inform, the nick PIAPS means Pig-In-A-Pant-Suit

Whatever she chooses, I'm for her. I don't think she'll mess it up for Martinez or any Republican, so either she really is thinking about it based on sound advice and information, or Drudge is wrong. Time will tell. I have to confess I think it would raise her profile even higher and I'd like to see it.

This story is totally incorrect. I have close friends, who I speak with on a daily basis, and work with on a weekly basis, at the highest levels of her organization.

She will NOT run for Senate. She realizes she is an 11 month Congresswoman who would energize every Democratic vote in the state. Her photograph next to Bush's as they campaigned together, as they would have to, would be a red flag every time it ran on TV or in a newspaper.

That would sink the Senate race, and the possibly Presidential race in Florida.... and remember, success in 2004 runs down I-4.

The Prez needs more votes than the Republicans. He needs the undecides, and sorry to say, right now, Katherine drives them away in droves. Give her time, and she can win a Senate race, but in this Presidential year, it is poison for everyone.

This story is wrong. There is no such consideration. It is an old trial balloon story, and is way past time, and completely wrong..... and we should all be very thankful of that.

----The fact that she's giving the socialist Bush family the finger makes her endearing to me.----

I'm sure you find the resultant likelihood of the Democrats keeping their FL Senate seat equally endearing.

Katherine, babe, I love ya.... but for God's sake stay the hell out of this race.

I certainly hope you are right. It would be really disappointing if it turned out she was as stupid as making this run would be.

Well, your implication that Harris is at odds in any way with GWB or Jeb Bush is complete and utter nonsense.

I see someone with contacts says this is not true, but it would not be because "The Bushes" told her not to, you can be sure.

Good grief.

She's not at odds with President Bush, just with Karl "Grima" Rove.

No, everyone did not.

Maybe not 'everyone', but certainly all the leading Democrats though Jeb was toast, or else they would not have made it priority one to defeat him. The Dems were certain the people of Florida were still upset over the 2000 fiasco. Katherine's has a higher positive rating than negative rating, so I think the anger is way overblown.

The Bush-bashers are just making things up as they go along. It's nothing new. Harris has supported Bush's policies, so this "she's more conservative than Bush" stuff is pure fiction.

I disagree. The Democratic leadership wanting to defeat Governor Bush to humiliate his big brother isn't the same as it being political consensus that Bush was going down to defeat.

Why is the relevant. She executed the law as she interpreted it. Nothing wrong with that.
