.. boy , oh boy , is Obama having a fit …

.. Dingy Harry Reid is having one just as big …

.. his nominee to head the Civil Rights Division of the Department of InJustice , law professor Debo Adegbile , was shot down today [Wednesday 03/05/2014] . The vote was 53 against , and 47 for the nomination …

.. Ouch ! …

.. effectively , the nomination is dead . The Senate GOP conference (all 45 senators) were unanimous against the nominee . It took 7 Dems to come across to vote against the nomination …. Does anyone think that the votes will change ? I do not …

Casey is from nearby suburban Philly ; he could never run again and have a realistic chance at winning . Manchin is a true moderate , and is from West Virginia ‘ s panhandle , running along PA ‘ s southern border [the Mason – Dixon line] . He is well aware of the Daniel Faulkner murder case .

.. other red state Dems will be under intense fire to reverse their support . Mary Landrieux is one . Kay Hagan is another . I would add Mark Warner (VA) , Mark Udall (Co) , and Jeanne Shaheen (NH) . They all voted in favour of Adegbile , and they are on the hot seat this fall . They will catch hell in issue ads …
