My official October prediction. Victory percentages might be a teensy bit off. Pretend that Vermont is green.

Can we leave the Lukid stuff out?  I'm sorry i just don't see it as approriate or to be revelant.... For one thing, Democratic nominee Lamont is very much pro-israel. Second, there is a reason that Lieberman will be re-elected..... and it isn't because he is a politician from Israel....

New Jersey is the Republicans' best chance for a pickup, and even that doesn't look very likely. Minnesota is swinging back to the Democrats, and they already have one Bushbot Republican in Norm Coleman. I highly doubt they'll elect another.

My over/under for Democratic pickups is +3. Anything less than 3 net pickups would be a disappointment in my eyes.

Wow. You are NOT going to be happy Election Night 2006, that's pretty much for sure.

good one!

I love how Harry was like the only person to accurately predict the outcome of Virginia before October. But then again, he also had Democrats taking Mississippi and Texas, so I guess his prediction can be attributed to luck Tongue

And, just for laughs, more Brown-bashing from Ben:

That sounds about right, but I think OH and TN will be closer. I didn't know Goodman was running, though.
Maybe TN, but Brown is going to get crushed in OH.

Remind me to completely disregard anything this guy says about Ohio Senate races in the future, thanks. Tongue

Senator-elect Brown is a great man.

I never understood why so many "populists" supported Hackett over Brown, when there really wasn't much difference between the two on policy (gun control is the only one I can think of, off the top of my head).

It must be style over substance- Hackett was an Iraq War veteran with rural roots, but Brown was an evil liberal from a big city. Oh, well. Brown thrashed Mikey anyway, so I'm happy. Smiley

Brown encouraged Hackett to run against DeWine, promising not to run and then, when he realized how vulnerable DeWine was, broke his word and backstabbed Hackett by running anyway. A "great man" my ass.

I'm sure he'll do just as well in the Senate as he did in the election. He's a smart guy.

But, still, we face the question: why do "populists"/communitarians seem to be the only ones outraged at Brown's "betrayal" of Hackett? The Kossacks were, at first, but they came around. Now it's only a few with positive social scores and negative economic scores.

You avoided my point, that personally Brown is a prick. Tongue I could answer you by saying that it's because my quadrant has ethics and yours doesn't, but that would be as silly as the points you keep making. Wink

I know you think that, and I know why you think that. I was asking a different question entirely: why are populists the only ones who still hold it against Brown? This has been amazingly consistent on Atlas- the only ones still attacking Brown over the Hackett affair are communitarians. Not liberals, not libertarians, not conservatives. Only populists.

I'm not trying to make any "point", and I'm not arguing over the Hackett affair itself. Still, for the record...

To be completely honest, I don't care about it one way or the other. I may disagree with his tactics in that instance, but I think he'll be an awesome Senator regardless. Apparently, communitarians are so holy that they can never forgive him that, and no longer care about his positions on the issues. Tongue

I can only speak for myself, not any others. Certain actions tend to taint my view of people. I think poorly of Brown, yes, and Menendez and Lautenberg, but I also think poorly of Chambliss and Burns and Bunning. I can be quite bipartisan in who I dislike. Tongue

Here's my guess as to your question: it is perceived that Brown backstabbing Hackett was a liberal backstab of a communitarian, and feeds into the argument that liberals only tolerate communitarians in the Democratic Party and will seek to get rid of them the second they don't need them. And those of you on the left certainly act that way. Liberals are thus ecstatic that a liberal won out instead of a communitarian, while conservatives and libertarians alike would've supported DeWine over a Democrat from any quadrant.

In my case, I admit I prefer candidates closer to the center than to the extremes. However, that is not enough to get me to dislike a politician - I don't dislike Whitehouse in RI, for example. It takes other factors for that to happen. And yes, communitarians are the Holy Ones. You may bow and give us homage. Tongue

Thanks for the response, WMS- I was genuinely interested, not just baiting you. This is pretty much what I was thinking, although it still doesn't make perfect sense (like I said, Brown and Hackett weren't that different on most issues...).

I don't like Brown at all, and I'm not a communitarian.

I wouldn't expect a conservative to care much for Brown.
