Although I do personally hate to see Landrieu lose, it's nice to see the people of Louisiana embrace the reality that party is far more important that individual candidates. Perhaps one day people in the more civilized, Northern states (I'm looking at you, Maine) will get their heads out of their Inks and draw the same self-evident conclusion.
You may have a point in legislative elections that choose the party that will have the (slim) majority and therefore the power to decide what reaches the floor, but in Gubernatorial/Presidential races, candidates definitely do matter, as what a moderate will sign/veto is far different from what a radical will sign/veto, and those laws that are signed will determine the future of the state or country.

If those Senate Democrats just passed the Keystone XL Pipeline bill....

Cassidy might only be up by 22...


Yeah Landrieu could have at least been within single digits w/ Keystone XL and could've won.

The Dems were dumb to reject it.

Look, let's face it. The NON-GA deep south is safe republican now, and there's nothing anyone can do to reverse it - even GA relies on getting huge black turnout and support and probably consistently getting 28-30% of whites while holding down white turnout. It took a while for the downticket races to catch up with presidential trends due to famous family names, poor challengers, luck, and Bill Clinton, but they've caught up now and there's nothing anyone can do.

The rest of the non-GA/AZ republican states may go the same way - democrats should be very nervous about Tester, McCaskill, Heitkamp, and Donnelly. Manchin can hold his seat, but if he retires, its gone.

Democrats aren't exactly considering those races safe Roll Eyes


and Heitkamp, Donnelly, and Tester are all probably in a better position than Manchin to win reelection.

Donnelly, who won only due to a bad republican nominee, is less vulnerable than Manchin? LOLOOLOLOL
