Post your endorsements

Here is mine



Explanations
WA - Cantwell is better than a Republican, even though I don't particularly like her.
NY - Clinton is too socially conservative. Because she is well-known I am more aware of these positions. She wins no matter what so I would vote for one of the third party candidates.
NE - Can't find anything about the independent in this race, so Nelson will have to do even though he sucks.
IN - No Democrat and a conservative Republican, Libertarian gets my endorsement.
RI - I like Chafee for some reason
CT - Essentially a race between two Democrats, but I don't like Joe Lieberman. Lamont by default.
WV - Byrd isn't that bad
VT - Sanders is better than Tarrant
Everything else - Dem by default

CT - Lieberman (normal)
FL - Stop the embarrassment that is Katherine Harris.  I suppose I'd vote for Belinda Noah.
WV - John Raese is a fruitbag... write-in future Senator Shelly Moore Capito
WI - Kohl (normal)

BRTD, why would you vote for a Republican over a third party candidate in Indiana?

Because Lugar actually has a bit of common sense and isn't as crazy as most Republicans, and Libertarians are crazy.

I can't figure out how to do the maps the way you guys do.  i am terrible with computers!!  So here's a list from this fairly liberal democrat...

Maine:  Olympia Snowe is the kind of Republican we need more of.
Vermont:  Bernie Sanders brings a needed voice to the upper chamber.
Mass:  One more term for Ted Kennedy.
Rhode Island:  Too much at stake NOT to support Whitehouse.
Conn:  Ned Lamont.  But I really do like Joe, too.
NY:  Hillary is an excellent Senator.  Hope she stays there in 08.
NJ:  Too much at stake not to support Menendez.
Penna:  Casey might turn out to be one of the greats.
Maryland:   Ben Cardin takes human rights & Enviro. issues seriously.
Delaware:  Tom Carper has earned another term.
W. Va.:  Robert Byrd can be a twit.  But he can also be quite eloquent.
Va.:  No brainer.  Jim Webb would be a natural on Defense issues.
Tenn:  Harold Ford.  But if Dem control weren't at stake, I might take a long
           look at Corker.  Mayoral experience goes a long way with me.
Fla:   Bill Nelson makes sense in every way.
Ohio:  Sherrod Brown is a bright light
Michigan:  Debbie Stabenow's work on Trade Reform & medicare are vital.
Indiana:  Dick Lugar would probably get my vote even with a Demo on
                the ballot.  his work with former Sen. Sam Nunn, Jimmy Carter
                and others re: loose nukes is unsung but crucial.
Wisc:  Russ Feingold might be the next Paul Wellstone.
Minn:  I am impressed with Amy Klobuchar.
Mo:   Ditto, Claire McCaskill
Texas:  Kay Bailey Hutchinson is a thoughtful conservative Texans can be
            proud of. 
Nebraska:  Ben Nelson's anti-abortion stance preserves an important
                  minority view in the Democratic party.  Not one I share, but
                  one I sincerely respect and believe is worth listening to.
North D:  Kent Conrad is good.  Real good.
Montana:   Best thing going for Jon Tester is that he ISN'T Connie Burns.
Wyoming:  Not impressed with either guy, frankly.  Groutage, I guess.
Utah:  Orrin Hatch has worked hard for Utah and, in spite of being very
           conservative, has worked with Ted Kennedy very well in crafting
           important legislation.  He deserves six more years.
New Mex:  Jeff Bingaman will continue to work hard for New Mexico.
Arizona:  Jim Pederson has the substance Jon Kyl lacks.
Nevada:  John Ensign has the respect of none other than Harry Reid. The
               two are close friends and work well together for Nevada.
California:  Dianne Feinstein is among the hardest-working members of
                  the upper chamber.  She serves California very well.
Washington:  Maria Cantwell for sure.  No more insurance CEOs in Wash.
                      please!
Hawaii:  Dan Akaka is a genuine American hero and there are too few of
              "the greatest generation" left in the Senate.  He gets my
              (meaningless) endorsement.  But I hope his Rep. opponent
              Cynthia Thielen stays active.  She shows real promise.
