Massive FF.

I don't know exactly what people expected him to do.  If the LibDems should never agree to be in a coalition where they can assist in the governing of the country, then why should they exist?  They did the right thing and paid a tremendous price for it.  Good for them for giving it a go.

Would Yesh Atid be a possible coalition partner instead of some of the Orthodox parties, or instead of Kulanu?

So is the likely Netanyahu coalition comprised of Likud+JH+UTJ+YB+Shas+Kulanu?

Of these choices, LibDems or Pirates.

So let me get this straight... if a state government creates a website that aggregates all of their press releases in one place, its automatically an eeeevil conspiracy to create a USSR-like state run broadcaster?

Can someone tell me what I'm missing here, other than a blatant attempt to bash a potential Presidential candidate?

Likud of course, but I miss Sharon's Kadima.

Now, they've lost all that and are down to 6 (!) of the 33 Senate seats. Also, the the TN Dems are struggling to get their preferred statewide candidates elected in the primaries.

Its actually down to 5 Smiley

I feel bad for the French Swiss for having to live in that place.

France itself was actually rather late to the party... they didn't have it until 1945.

I can't wait for Cruz to say that ObamaCare, net neutrality, and Common Core are the same thing.

"Common Core is ObamaCare for schools"

The nutters are already calling it "ObamaCore"

While repealing the seventeenth is a pipedream for a few on the right

We did have a push in our legislature to go around the 17th amendment and have the legislature appoint the US Senate nominees of each party - effectively selecting the Senator.

What happened in Cocke County to make them the only county voting No?

Maybe they're so close to another state that they didn't mind the idea of out-of-state funders coming in to buy up our judges.

New Election: 2014 Tennessee Referendum General Election Results
    
    

TN Amendment 1 - the most controversial item on our ballot this year.  There were more votes cast in this race than in the Governor's or US Senate races.  Note the substantial urban v. rural split.  Almost every precinct in Nashville/Davidson Co. went for "no", regardless of partisan characteristics.  Deeply Republican Knox and Hamilton counties joined the more Democratic counties in voting no.

In 2000, in Planned Parenthood v. Sundquist, the TN Supreme Court held that there is a stronger right to abortion in our state constitution than in federal law.  This amendment neutralizes this decision, empowering the legislature to enact legislation that regulates abortion.

Amendment effectively clarified that the "Tennessee Plan" for judicial selection, with the additional step of legislative ratification, is Constitutional

The fact that the Conservatives are still hovering at 30% while UKIP is in the mid-teens is amazing.  They're doing what the Canadian PC's couldn't - lose their crazy uncles and still remain the primary center-right party.
