do the math..52 + 6 is 58..then there are several votes to confirm....if Own had an up/down vote..it'd be 60/40......this type of crap will cost the Dems every senate seat, most congressional seats, and a lot of state eats in the south.....the biggest issue in this year's Miss gov race may well be Pickering's nomination..

It may depend on one's perspective. I would not, in 2004, vote for ANY Republican running for Senate in my state. And my state is one up next year.

My reason: The Pubs have shown no leadership. They don't deserve to try to run the Senate after the next election.

Sorry, but that's how I see it. Had they forced the Dems into 24/7 fillibustering and other forceful measures, I would probably be supporting the Republican candidate--none which have announced in my state---yet.

Now, no way. I'd stay home before I'd vote for a Republican for Senate.

I would note that my House Rep (Pub) has voted the way I like on most major issues. He was not my preferred candidate before he went to Washington, but he will have my support for his reelection.

explain to me how you think Pickering's nomination is big in the MS gov race. Besides, both will likely support him, even if they didn't what's the point?
