… In Brasil , think about Maria Silva [#presidential election]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,September 7th,2014

.. Marina who ? ..

.. she is a long – time sustainable – energy green activist , one who happens to be a businesswoman to boot … something of a surprise . She does not neglect her grass – roots activism , by no means . However , she manages to mix in the practicality of business along with it …

.. in Brasil , it is managing to catch the Brasilian nation ‘ s attention …

.. [h/t — theGuardian.co.uk]..
.. [link] to the news article …

.. she came to the fore when the previous Green party candidate died in a plane crash . So , in stepped Maria . To everyone ‘ s surprise , she managed to convince a conservative businessman to run with her as her vice – presidential candidate . Since the conservative party did not have a readily credible candidate this time around , the tories in Brasil have rallied around Marina . Boy , oh Boy , has she taken off …

.. if opinion polls hold , she may well win the Brasilian presidency this year . She would need to beat incumbent Dinah Rousseff in a runoff , but the polls indicate that she would have a fighting chance …

.. stay tuned ….

… Thad Cochran is a ” Dead Man Walking ” [#politics]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,June 17th,2014

.. especially after the upset special in VA 7 , where House Majority Leader Eric Cantor made the kind of political history that no one wants to make …

.. Cochran faces businessman and politician Chris McDaniel in a June 24th runoff for the GOP nomination for the US Senate from Mississippi . The eventual nominee will be the very heavy favourite in the general election on November 5th , as Mississippi is as ” Red ” as it gets . Yes , it is that much …

.. McDaniel has a good chunk of momentum already , by finishing first in the primary . He just missed winning the nomination outright by about 1,500 votes or so . So , he is going in the right direction . Cochran is an old hand , having served 6 terms in the US Senate . He is seeking his seventh ….

.. I believe that Cochran will not get it . Since both folks know their relative strengths (and weaknesses) , both can make moves , as well as countermoves , for the runoff . Cochran is the known quantity . McDaniel is the fresh face …

.. McDaniel in the runoff …

… Interesting Ad [Louisiana US Senate] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,February 18th,2014

.. that the DummyCraps are not going to like , not one bit .

.. Senator Mary Landrieux [D-La] is going to be very popular this election cycle . Her political position has become very , very precarious . She is either even in the polls with her potential (likely Republican) opponents , or she is trailing them . Worse for her , she is well below 50 percent in the polls . That is the ” danger ” zone for any incumbent …

.. Louisiana is an unusual byrd . It has what is known in the elections trade as a ” jungle ” primary . Democraps , Republicans , and Independents , everybody runs in the primary , which is held on the regular Election Day [in November] . If the first place winner gets 50% + 1 vote , then they are elected . If not , then the top 2 finishers , regardless of party , go on to the runoff election (usually held about 5 to 6 weeks later) .

.. this year , Landrieux should make the runoff , but it is not guaranteed . If she is the only Dem , then she will make it . If another Dem with any support runs , then she is in deep doo – doo . She and a republican will move on to the (December) runoff election . Depending on the General Eleection results , control of the Senate could be in the balance .

.. I think that she will go . Ads like this one will be thick as fleas all year long …
