In this race, I think Helms actually hurts Carter more than Ford, since Carter was arguably the more conservative of the two candidates.

Ford/Dole: 43% PV, 297 EV
Carter/Mondale: 40% PV, 204 EV
Helms/Buckley: 17% PV, 37 EV

Ronald Reagan, who had at first pledged his full support to Nixon, reconsiders his thoughts and chooses to run as an independent. He convinces Clifford Case of New Jersey to join the ticket as his running mate.

From memory Clifford P. Case was a Rockefeller Republican so why and how could Ronald Reagan convince Senator Case to join his 3rd Party ticket.



Secondly, I don't think Reagan would have won California, Arizona and Nevada. I think had this (yet another unplausible scenario from Gporter) occured, Governor Reagan would at best finish second in a few states e.g Deep South and possibly California. Also Warner for Senate '08, why do you think Reagan would win these three states, just curious.

I think he would come close in other places, but since in 1972 he was still known primarily as Governor of California, he would only be able to pull out victories in those three states.

I hereby pledge to support the Democratic nominee in November, no matter who it is.

Would a loss here destroy Obama's campaign? Everyone thought he'd win here, and I think this would be a major blow to his campaign's morale. I still think he could pull it out though.

No, he'd still win SC and most of the South. But nothing can be called yet.

Don't count on it.  If he loses here, it may discourage people in SC and they'll either not vote at all or vote for Hillary.  Don't count your chickens before they hatch.

(I sincerely hope that my innate prejudice against Italian-Americans, Republicans and Pennsylvanians, as well as my core belief that all trial defendants are automatically guilty, doesn't interfere with the fair conduct of this case.)

Your Honor,

After reading this statement, I ask the court to expell the juror and have him executed.

Calm down, I'm sure he was only joking.

The political affiliation of each state's senior senator.

(If I'm correct, Oregon is wrong.)

You're right.

Back to my question:
How many Presidents have served as a Governor, Congressman, and Senator, and who are they?

I just don't think it is a good idea to nominate two Senators with a combined tenure of 6 years.  Other than that, though, Webb is a good pick.

Former Sen. George Allen (R-Va.) announced Tuesday that he will not run for his state’s governorship in 2009, ending speculation about a return to the office he held prior to his term in the Senate.

In a statement posted on his website, Allen thanked those who encouraged him to run but said he will not enter the race.

“We will always fondly recall our time in the Governor’s Mansion as an unparalleled honor and a period of historic initiatives and transformational accomplishments for Virginians,” Allen said. “Yet, as we look forward, we are excited about other significant ways we can serve and contribute outside of elected office. Therefore, I will not be a candidate for governor in 2009.”

Allen said he will continue to work in the public sphere. He fell to now-Sen. Jim Webb (D) by fewer than 10,000 votes out of more than 2 million cast in 2006.

“Republican leadership in our state has initiated far-reaching positive changes and we have joined with forward-thinking people from across party lines to make Virginia a better place to live, work, learn and raise a family,” he said. “I am pleased to have been able to be a part of that progress.”

Even though he would probably have lost, it is just good to know that I do not have to worry about him possibly winning in 2009.

The runner up in each state would probably get those delegates, so I imagine that Hillary would win.

Ohio for the GOP
Missouri for the Democrats

I think this is what I need to do to become a juror:
I swear (or affirm) that I will well and truly try the matter in issue between the parties, and give a true verdict according to the law and evidence, so help me Dave.

By 2012, Obama has brought the troops home from Iraq, passed Universal Healthcare and a major energy independence initiative, and has dealt successfully with the recession in 2008. Going into 2012 against some random Republican, his approval rating hovers around 60%.



I don't think GA, LA, or SD will be tossups in the near future.
