Lugar’s appointment might assure something else... if the GOP incumbent Governor loses reelection (which is a strong possibility), the new Dem Governor appoints another rodent to the Senate vacancy (meaning both IN Senate seats would be rodent), probably Baron Hill. We could be down to as low as 41 seats if the elections are a disaster for us (the fewest number of GOP Senators since the 1978 election).

And the republicans deserve a butt kicking. They spent too much of our money, the dollar is a disaster, Iraq is draining money we don’t have and have to borrow from China & OPEC.

Then we nominate a 71 year old Dole redux. Except for the Bush tax cuts, I can’t see what the republican leaders have done to deserve better.

All the more reason for all conservative voters throughout the U.S. to truly not stay at home on November 4 while seriously concentrating all of their efforts on all political offices at every political level outside of the Presidential race. A truly conservative majority in Congress will successfully prevent long-term socialism from happening throughout the U.S. no matter who the next “leftist” POTUS is!

You mean soon to be ex-ex-ex Rep. Baron Hill?

I don’t think that Lugar would accept an appointment under those circumstances. He might if Mitch Daniels is reelected. That could happen, more because none of the Democrats running for Governor in Indiana have inspired any enthusiasm than anything else. Daniels is highly unpopular in northern Indiana, but seems to be fairly popular in the Indy area.
