Naw, day Dems ain't worried,,,, much!

7. Iowa (D): Democratic Rep. Bruce Braleyís latest fundraising report showed why Democrats were so giddy about about him jumping into the race for retiring Democratic Sen. Tom Harkinís seat. Braley, a good fundraiser, brought in more than $1 million since Harkin announced his retirement in late January. On the Republican side, the biggest question continues to be whether Rep. Steve King will make a bid. The primary is arguably his to lose if he runs, but the congressmanís outspoken, conservative brand of politics isnít the best fit for the general election.(Previous ranking: 7)

An hear is anudder won does Dems be worried abouts.

6. Arkansas (D): Speculation on the GOP side has centered around freshman Rep. Tom Cotton, the rare Republican who can unite the Club for Growth crowd and the establishment. Heís young (35), but pretty much everyone in the GOP is banking on him at this point. The question is whether itís too soon after winning his congressional seat, and if it is, whether Republicans can produce another strong challenger to Sen. Mark Pryor (D), who is hampered by being a Democrat in an increasingly red state. Lt. Gov. Mark Darr (R) is likely to run, and he may have the inside track if Cotton passes. This is a very winnable seat for the GOP.(Previous ranking: 6)

5. North Carolina (D): Sen. Kay Hagan (D) recently came out in favor of gay marriage Ė a somewhat dicey proposition in a Southern state that just went for Mitt Romney in the presidential race. The Tar Heel State, much like Montana, so far features a lesser-known crop of GOP lawmakers, including state Senate President Phil Berger, state House Speaker Thom Tillis, second-term Rep. Renee Ellmers and state Labor Commissioner Cherie Berry.(Previous ranking: 4)

Oh no, not a Senator Sarah Palin?

3. Alaska (D): The GOP field to face Sen. Mark Begich (D) is likely to be crowded, with only one person who could change that. You thought we were going to say Sarah Palin, but in fact weíre referring to her lieutenant governor, Sean Parnell, who is now a very popular governor. Heís given little indication, though, that heís leaning toward a bid. For now, Parnellís lieutenant governor, Mead Treadwell, has opened an exploratory committee, and other possible candidates include Anchorage Mayor Dan Sullivan, 2010 GOP nominee Joe Miller and former lieutenant governor Loren Leman. But Miller tanked after winning the nomination in 2010, and his numbers remain so bad that itís hard to see him winning the primary.(Previous ranking: 3)

Jacques,
I think one of Al Gore's biggest problems, which irked me to no end, was his inability to speak in a fluid, non-detached manner.
Because GWB did LMAO (LRS tm reg'd).

As to Clinton being responsible for Gore's loss, true, but not the way you imply. Gore made the huge mistake of not recruiting Clinton to campaign for him because he was afraid of the Lewinski affair ramifications. He erred, grossly erred. Obama was smarter, he used Clinton and ALL the Dem big guys to his advantage.

False, patently false and misinformed. Tell that to the various Jewish sects, Orthodox, and so forth. Tell that to the Christians and their incessant religious wars. Religions are man-made and therefore terribly imperfect, nothing but a path to power. Every religion was born, conceived, to ensnare its followers, scare them, not promise rewards mainly, but threats of hell if they did not follow the path as drawn by THEM. Can't you even see that?

But still Jaques does not 'get it'! Racism clouding you thought process?

Cracker (pejorative)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cracker, sometimes white cracker or cracka, is a sometimes pejorative expression for white people,[1] especially poor rural whites in the Southern United States. In reference to a native of Florida or Georgia, however, it is sometimes used in a neutral or positive context and is sometimes used self-descriptively with pride.

Etymology

There are multiple explanations of the etymology of "cracker", most dating its origin to the 18th century or earlier. One theory holds that slave foremen in the antebellum South used bullwhips to discipline African slaves, with such use of the whip being described as 'cracking the whip'. The white foremen who cracked these whips thus became known as "crackers".

They are called by the town's-people, "Crackers," from the frequency with which they crack their large whips, as if they derived a peculiar pleasure from the sound"
