    McCaskill just needs him to stick it out in the race until 5:00 pm tomorrow. After that time he's apparently on the ballot and R's can't change it.

    I'm pretty sure he'll drop out tomorrow afternoon. We'll learn he wants to spend more time with his family.

    Atkins? The diet? Tommy Atkins, the universal British soldier?

    What?

    She wants him in because he is the only one she had a remote chance of beating.

    And you can thank Clair for him if he stays on board and gets elected. She supported him.

    Oh what sweet justice that will be.

    If he bails and the R's pull in number 2....Clair knows she just got flushed.
