An issue that’s not getting much attention is the Texas Democratic U.S. Senate primary. With the potential for a huge turnout of Texas independents solely to voteÂ for Obama, will these voters simply mark the first name on the Senate part of the ballot? If so, who is that? And why have the Texas Dems fielded the worst group of potential U.S. SenateÂ candidates ever? Why is Ron Kirk not on that list?
Obama’s going to win Texas andÂ this nomination.Â And his coattails are going to be hugeÂ in the general election. ThisÂ will beÂ the Democrats’Â bestÂ chance toÂ unseat Cornyn. The Texas DemocratsÂ have been caughtÂ sleeping.
I can tell you why Ron Kirk isn’t on the list: being a politician doesn’t pay as much as lobbying a politician.
