    About time! I'll bet Charlie Crist is kicking himself in the ass right about now. Had he let Rubio have the win without his stupid 3rd party run, he'd still be a Republican (INO) in good standing and would be a lock for the seat. I wonder if Kendrick Meeks will sign up for an ass kicking again?

    Ben's gone because he voted with the Dims, not the Cons. Voting for Obamacare sealed his fate. The people of Nebraska hate Obamacare.

    It's too bad for the Democrats. Their best hope in the state is that Kerrey can somehow be coaxed into the thankless job that running for the Senate would be.

    The good news, such as it is, is that it could be worse. When Bayh decided not to run, it converted an almost certain win into an almost certain loss. With Nelson deciding not to run, it converts a probable loss into an almost certain one. So this decision costs them maybe something like .25 Senate seats, whereas Bayh's cost them more like .80 Senate seats.
