I wasn't expecting Bredesen to lead. Considering Freudental was trailing Barrasso, I thought Bredesen would trail Corker. Barrasso is a much more popular Senator though.

I 'd expect Bart Gordon would have done better though.

Surprising to see Bredesen actually lead.

That's really the good thing about it. Of the Democrats listed, Bredesen is the only one I like.

So TN is a win-win situation.

Know what would be a hilarious race? Williams, Jr. vs. McGraw.

Why is there a 20-point spread between the Vanderbilt poll and the PPP poll ?

Vanderbilt had Corker at 63% approval, PPP at 42%.

Bredesen as a federal Democrat (and not Tennessee's equivalent of Bloomberg buying a party nomination no one else wanted) is inconceivable. The guy isn't a conservative Democrat, he's a conservative who worked with the Democratic party for this one position.

Yeah, he wouldn't be a popular Democrat around here. But he's 67 right now, I don't think he'll run.

I'm anticipating someone objecting about my wanting to purge moderates from the party or somesuch. But that's not what it is. Bredesen is an executive and wanted to be governor, and ran as a Democrat because he could. He just couldn't be a Democratic senator--he wouldn't run and truly wouldn't fit in the Dem caucus, like Gene Taylor crossed with Barry Goldwater. My own views don't even come into play because in TN, the Dem bench is empty.

Methinks to take a seat in otherwise unwinable TN, the Dem Caucus will welcome him with open arms and let him be a new Ben Nelson to his heart's content.

I don't know how conservative Bredesen is, but to be honest I don't remember him bashing the liberals like Harold Ford, Evan Bayh or Ben Nelson do every chance they get.
Even when he was attacked, when his name was floated as HHS secretary after the Daschle fiasco, he tried to defend and explain his actions as governor, not to dismiss his critics as out-of-touch ideologues.

Corker is vulnerable to a theoretical primary challenge but deflects Bocephus by a 66-13 margin, Marsha Blackburn by 50-30.

Bredesen is Tennesee's Henry. I don't expect him to run.

Also LOL Al Gore.

Clearly the solution is to privatize presidential elections.

So, in less than four years, get excited for the 2016 MetLife Financial U Pick The Prez Extravaganza. If you tweet a picture of your completed ballot with the hashtag #ivoted, you could win a trip for two to the inauguration or an iTunes gift card.

A Bredesen vs Corker race would be a tough campaign...
