I’m a Louisianan, and I’ll take those odds. Melancon has been Hope and Change’s rubber stamp, and I doubt LA is going to promote him after voting against him in a landslide.
Besides, there’s no indication Melancon is going to run...at least not yet. Aside from him, the Dem bench is a bunch of nobodies.
Exactly. Obama is persona non-grate in Louisiana. Obama is testing the waters for 2010 right now. If he pushes too hard he knows he’ll get creamed in the 2010 Congressional elections. If not we’ll see the worst Democrat policies ever before the election of 2012 because they will have solidified power by then.
Bitch Landrieu isn’t a nobody. Voters probably don’t want to send Bart Simpson to the Senate to join Lisa though.
