re: President Landrieu update: 60 Mins to feature the Republicans biggest nightmare candidate
it depends on how you track political appeal. I usually go with perceived relatability and aesthetics. basically who do you like more or who would you want to have over at a dinner party or go bar hopping with more.

1. he's in the bill Clinton stratosphere of bull shite. seriously, he's an A+ liar and sounds way less canned than the shite they're pumping out across the political landscape. he can improvise too.

2. he's a white male and the biggest problem democrats have in the Midwest, which just saw 3 states flip, almost 4, is that they are the party that hates white people. plain and simple, no matter how much democrats and progs laugh at that assertion, that is how they're perceived by a shite ton of white voters.

3. he's kind of a whatever you want me to be. a blue collar dem that just went for trump may see him as a return to the democrats of old, and to the progs, well he's got some cred with them on the statues thing.

4. catholic (religious) family man married with 5 kids...he's 57. kids may be too old, I don't know. 5 is a little too many. but better than 0 and better than 1. If he were 10 years younger with 2 or 3 kids he’d be in better shape but it’s still a net plus in relatability

5. Louisiana. he's not from DC nor is he a coastal elite educated at top prep schools and ivy league schools. he speaks with a southern accent, and not the kind that is off putting.

6. He’s not at that intense level others in his party are at


I knew those fricking statues were a launch point, and I'm telling you I wouldn't underestimate his skill or ambition. I think he can win the nomination and depending on the platform, can give trump a real run

achievements are good, and he doesn't have any, but they're not requirements

he would be an intriguing candidate. I hope to god he doesn't even sniff the debate stage.

6 children because you forgot to add his bastard child that was born out of wedlock. Don’t believe they are still married either as the wife filed for divorce.

You have to consider how valued a record is though. It’s a great way of proving your cred, but the last 2 presidents have no record to speak of and his record is at the municipal level. (I know he was Lt gov but still)

He’s not as cornered on national policy issues as other politicians

+ another with a mistress. It’s a pretty open secret in NOLA.

That may not hurt him with the Dem vote. Or possibly it will. Either way, it would kill him in the general.

re: President Landrieu update: 60 Mins to feature the Republicans biggest nightmare candidate
Ole Fox is talking sense if y'all would listen. People are dumb. He's got a southern drawl and his entire strategy will be to appear as the more 'reasonable' choice during the campaign if he were smart. Will have massive appeal with both progs and the blue collar crowd. As he put it, they will see it as a return to the dems of old.

This guy is a massive piece of shite and I want y'all to seriously imagine how much worse he would be if he actually won. There's a lot at stake in that scenario and I'm not comfortable with even the most slim chance of it being actualized

link?

I would believe it, but don’t forget who controls 95% of mainstream news.

Open secrets uptown and the front page of the post are long way apart

In this age of blogging and social media? Not as far apart as you’d think. Trump is living proof of that.

He’s worse than his sister...who by the way is connected in DC

I’m not shaking in my boots, but I’m a long way away from laughing at the suggestion too.

He’s such a piece of shite too.

Does it matter if the message is getting out anyway?

As I said, Trump is living proof of that.

And Trump is currently being accused of having an affair with a pornstar and paying for her to get an abortion. People won't give a shite about mistress rumors. Mitch is dangerous, and did I mention he is also an extremely large steaming pile of shite as well as the physical manifestation of what is wrong with Louisiana politics.

You think? We are probably past that at this point. Two of the last 4 presidents have had plenty of baggage in this department.

A bastard kid revelation during an election is a big deal. But I agree with the overall sentiment

No one gives a shite about stormy and Mitch isn’t trying to win evangelicals who just by the way went for Donald trump

We’re in a moment of unsettled dynamics after trump won. And we don’t know the circumstances of 2020

I don’t ever want anyone from Louisiana in the White House just as I never want anyone from Chicago or south Florida. Nothing against any of them except they’re the gold standards of corruption

Do you see what YouTube, Facebook and twitter are doing?

I think trump is an insane challenge for anyone though, but Mitch isn’t someone I would dismiss. I’m not worried, but I’m not laughing either

He can also run as an outsider even though we all know thats bullshite

A bastard child has ended John Edwards political career within the last 10 years. And that was within the Democratic Party.

And he was a FAR more palatable candidate than Mitch Bitch.

well there was a lot more to that story than a bastard child, but I see what you mean.
