Skip to comments.ROBERT (THE KLEAGLE) BYRD MAY HAVE MET HIS MATCH

Byrd has won every election by a landslide, but it appears he may have his work cut out for him. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito could give him a run for his money. Current polls give Byrd 46% and Capito 43%. The beauty of this is Capito has not announced a run for Byrd's seat. Byrd is so desperate that he has Sen. Obama raising money for him. Irony?

Give it up, Robby, You are too old.
He will retire with grace rather than run and lose.
A Republican pickup here will offset a loss in Tennessee when Rep. Harold Ford wins Sen Frist's retired seat.
Harold Ford could win elsewhere but not Tenn. That's a Red stste now.
Sarcasm at its finest?
So is South Dakota.
But it had 2 Democrat senators until last November.
Ford will win easily because he is a very conservative Dem.
I'll expect him to adorn the national ticket.....VP or POTUS...within the next 20 years.
That doesn't mean he will win though.
I'm backing Sen. George Allen for president in 2008.
He has Bush's homespun charm, is unbeatable in a good-sized southern state (Virginia) and has a gift Bush was born without.
He is an articulate man!!!!!
By placing the Rebel flag on Byrd's Klan Suit, you are making a false assumption, namely, that the Rebel Flag is racist, when everyone knows it is not racist.
If Ford and Co can't keep Willie Herenton from winning elections in their personal feifdom, then how in God's name do you expect them to win Tennessee.
A fair point.
Byrd will resign on a medical leave: hemorrhoids.
I heard he thinks he "inherited" Sen. Obama from his Grandfather!
I'm from Southern PA and I know that!!
I suggest you review his votes from the ACU. Junior is very much a liberal 'Rat. His name is synomous with racism and corruption in Tennessee, and he most certainly will not win our fine state.
Ford has an ACU rating of 21 last year. The other Dems had 13, 42,43 and 56. So how is that Conservative?
See post #6. Sic 'em, Gail !
Ford is not conservative. I am in his distric so I know of what I speak. He may talk a good game but he is a LIBERAL from the FORD Crime family. The rest of the state hates the Fords with a passion. No way he wins. His uncle was just indicted for bribery (John Ford the TN state senator).
Thanks for setting me straight!!!!!!!
Now I can sleep tonight.
I'll go you one better on the whole rebel flag-Klan past of Byrd.
That stupid move on his part was over FIFTY years ago!Attack Byrd for being an out of touch liberal sycophant with a big mouth and I completely agree.But let the Klan diatribes die.He has totally repudiated that part of his past and I think its petty of conservatives to keep beating this dead horse.
Besides,the Klan today is a bunch of on-line hucksters trying to sell T-shirts and bumper stickers.They are dead as a terrorist group.
