I think him and Governor Warner might be 2 tough dems to watch out for in 2008, if they are on the same ticket.

Bredesen is already more popular among republicans then Warner, and has a better background. The GOP had better be doing opposition research on this guy.

Bredesen won mostly due to some Tennessee Republicans finding a Democrat more palatable than a Conservative from their own party.

The DUmmies are convinced that Kerry lost because he wasn't liberal enough. This guy will never make it through the Dem primaries.

Needless to say, Bredesen is not a natural politician. He lacks the offhand charm of John Edwards and the back-slapping verve of Bill Richardson.

Bredeson isn't an attention sponge or a drama queen, which is precisely his appeal for a lot of people. He's low key, straightforward, and smart -- similar to Joe Lieberman. He regularly sits for an interview with our local conservative talkshow guy. I've been impressed the two or three times I've heard him. He seems to be running the state like a fiscal conservative. And on the social side, if he's got a liberal streak, he keeps a lid on it. He doesn't seem out of step with the culture of the state at all. Overall I'd rate his performance very highly. If the national Democrat party were like Phil Bredeson, this would be a much healthier country. We would then have a sane, responsible opposition party.
