While Romney has not been strong in the South for primaries, I expect more polls like this one to disprove the theory that the GOP will lose the South if Romney is the nominee. When he's actually performing better than two southerners there, that has to mean something.

If Ellsworth does anything, I think he'll try and win his seat back in Congress. 2010 proved he won't be able to win a statewide office, the same with just about anyone the Democrats put up.

That's a rather silly statement - it's like saying that, because John McCain lost in 2008, McCain could never have won the Presidency in 2000, 2004, etc.
Touche, I understand your reasoning. Coats was a terrible candidate, and Ellsworth should have made this race close. Many on both sides were expecting the race to tighten up, and the fact that it didn't shows that the Democratic party will struggle.

On a related note, Democrats do have a shot at kicking Tony Bennett out of Superintendent of the Schools. A lot, including myself, are extremely upset with the job he's doing. He seems to be more focused on keeping his "tough guy" image than he is actually doing his job right. He seems to be completely ignoring the will of his constituents. My hopes is that Dan Tanoos, Superintendent of Vigo County Schools, runs against him.

^Ugh, now I gotta turn signatures off again.

Dennis Kucinich vs Jean Schmit would be awesome. 

My advice: Leave it permanently off. This one is just insulting to SoS Clinton to be put with those pictures.

Here in Indiana, I'd love to see an Ellsworth vs. Hostetller race. A rematch of the 2006 Congressional race. Actually, throw Lugar in there as an Independent, and that'd be spectacular.

So are we considering troop withdraws from both in light of the crises in Egypt. Possibly moving 25% to Our bases in Saudi Arabia and a 25% drawdown in both Iraq and Afganistan?
JCL,
Our Game Moderator posts all national and foreign updates here. Since there has not been a post yet on the Egyptian crisis, in this world, it hasn't happened...yet. So I guess the answer to your question is no.

Not so. This law says the events in Egypt are currently of great relevance to Atlasia.

Wow, the Atlasian Senate is probably the only one in the world which can create reality. Grin

Could she just be waiting to run for the full term in 2012? That way she could fufill her duties as Congresswoman, which was her main excuse.

I'll defend Bushie here, and everyone else in the South. The north is much more prepared for this than the South is. We have the equipment, resources, and we're used to it. In the South, it's a waste for them to purchase the equipment and resources, since snowfall often doesn't occur but maybe once a year, if that. The people there also aren't used to driving in the weather.

We're off here because we have an inch of ice and electricity is out in many places. :/

Just because a state votes for Democrat's doesn't mean the Republican Party there is liberal. Take Delaware, for example.

Great, but one question: Why would the Oklahoma legislature make Boren's district safer than it currently is? They don't have much to lose by trying to gerrymander him out, considering all of the other districts in the state are very Republican.

"Across the board" spending cuts is code for "I don't know what to cut but this gets me out of any of those questions."
I've stated before I plan on proposing cuts to defense. I will outline several specific cuts my administration will support in the future, certainly before the election. I've just had a rough few days, and haven't had the time to do it yet.
An update on this: I've been working with JBrase extensively, as well as Badger, on specific cuts to defense spending. I don't have a finished version to show you all just yet, but as JBrase and I were scanning through the budget, something caught our eye: Funding for the Afghanistan and Iraq wars was at very high levels, despite our downsize there. After sending this notice along to Badger, Iíve learned that we were correct in our guess, as well as being the first to notice this and mention it to him: Despite Badger bringing this up during the Budget Process Committee, we are currently funding the Iraq and Afghanistan wars at the level of itís pre-surge height, according to Badgerís reports. This certainly should have been cut out of the recent budget passed, and under a Tmthforu94/Dallasfan65 administration, I can promise you that it will be cut out.

The field is crowded, but after the leadoff states, it quickly becomes a contest between Huckabee, Romney, and Gingrich. Following the Ohio plan, Romney gains considerable momentum following the small states, and it leads him to the nomination. Gingrich drops out after mid-February.

11423  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: DNC names '12 convention finalists: Charlotte, Cleveland, Minneapolis, St. Louis on: February 01, 2011, 06:54:09 pm
The mayor of St. Louis, MO says that this is about the Dems and the South (from his blog):
Quote
St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay: St. Louis was not selected for 2012 for reasons of electoral politics. That is a decision of the President and his reelection team. I will not fault it. St. Louis will submit a bid for a 2016 national political convention, when the electoral politics will be different.

Thanks to all who helped put together a strong DNC bid. We just arenít the South.

So perhaps the Dems think holding the line on NC (and VA) is more important than potentially picking up MO?


Interesting. I would have thought Missouri as a better choice, since you also have a Senate race there, and having the convention in St. Louis would no doubt help McCaskill.

An interesting you mentioned the need for "regional GM's". I completely agree with you on this matter, which is why it was included in my platform (See Below). Whether the GM would become a "Deputy" or a "Co-GM", I think it's extremely important that regional issues are adressed, so that regional legislatures can have real problems to solve.

This ticket believes a way to solve that problem would be to take the load off one GM by creating a second one.

I believe elected legislatures can be important and beneficial to the game, and think that they'd be even more productive than they already are if they had an adequate amount of information from the GM, close to like we had in the day's of Purple State as GM. Smiley

With two game moderators, one would work specifically on regional affairs, and the other on foreign and national affairs.
