HE MAY NOT BE BLACK, BUT HE SURE AIN'T CAJUN:

Breaux Waits For Ruling on La. Candidacy (Chris Cillizza, March 27, 2007, Washington Post)

Former senator John Breaux (D-La.) will run for governor this November -- assuming the state's top cop lets him. [...]

Still, even if Breaux gets the okay from Foti to run, his election is far from a sure thing. Republicans are extremely confident that their likely candidate -- Rep. Bobby Jindal -- can beat all comers.

A recent poll by Southern Media & Opinion Research showed Jindal with a surprisingly large lead -- 56 percent to 26 percent -- over Breaux.


Blanco won the last match-up by running a racist campaign, Breaux presumably can too.

Katrina destroyed Democrat party hopes in LA through population displacement. Has a natural disaster ever had such an effect on politics before in our history.
