I personally don’t think Mitt will ask him..because Presidents don’t like to pick a VEEP who has MORE star quality than they do.

Then, who the heck does that leave? I guess Orrin “No Charisma” Hatch will be our VP nominee. LOL.... Thanks for the comment, however. Your input was very encouraging. We need an encouraging word on here now and then.

My FRiend, I have NO clue as to who we will end up picking for the senate race. We've run through a ton of candidates..none has managed to catch fire, either with the base or with the $$$ people.

Adma Hasner was viewed as the 2nd coming of Rubio...he couldn't possibly live up to that billing. He's a good guy, a solid conservative, and will now win a House seat. Good for him.

Here's the scorecard:..I think it's current, and accurate (but I could be wrong, or have missed somebody..it's so darn hard to keep track of them all):

Currently running:Fisher, LeMieux, Mack, McCallister, Neil, Stuart

Dropped out: George, Haridopolous, Miller, Hasner

Thinking about getting in: Atwater, Baker, Carroll, Lee, McBride, Ruddy, Webster

Declined to run..but MIGHT jump back in if begged to do so, promised TONS of $$,and NO primary, or virtually no opposition: Bense, Buchanan, Bush, Loeb, Rooney, West

Which is why I've said for many months that Jeb rides in at the last minute, unifies the party, and wipes out Nelson easily. He doesn't want to have to RUN for it..he wants to be asked...have it handed to him...and I can understand that..he wants to devote ALL his energies and resources to beating Nelson.

You have to realize, the Dem party in Florida is in lousy shape statewide..they got wiped out last time, losing the senate and governor's races..and there is no elected Dem in the state with positive name recognition..you can forget all the crazies that belong to the Black Caucus.....they're left with Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and Alan Grayson..that's the BEST they have???

The important thing is that there is NO way that Obama carries Florida, and there is NO electoral path to an Obama win in 2012 without his carrying Florida..we stopped Gore in 2000, and we will put an end to Obama in 2012..

Redistricting didn't go as well for the GOP here as I had hoped...the VRA limited the GOP's options to some extent..but I do think we'll have several pleasant surprises in the House races..remember..it can't be emphasized enough..unlike 2010, Obama is atop the ticket this November, and that's gonna HURT Dems across the state...as an example, there was a column in the TampaBayTimes ( ultra liberal rag) the other day, talking about how Nelson had a good chance of winning because he was going to run several points AHEAD of Obama..They are whistling past he graveyartd..Good luck to them with that. Yessirree!!!

Hope all this makes you smile...tell you what..you bookmark this post, and you can remind me the day after election day how well (or not) I did as a prognosticator..

Be well
