THEY'LL REALLY HAVE TO RACE BAIT TO WIN THIS TIME:

Breaux No-Go Leaves La. Democrats in Bind (Chris Cillizza, April 18, 2007, Washington Post)

Former senator John Breaux's decision not to run for governor in November left Louisiana Democrats scrambling for a strong candidate for the seat being vacated by Gov. Kathleen Babineaux Blanco (D). [...]

On Monday, Lt. Gov. Mitch Landrieu -- one of the most often mentioned Democratic replacements -- said he will run for reelection to his current post, removing himself from consideration. [...]

Rep. Bobby Jindal (R), who narrowly lost to Blanco in 2003, is viewed as the race's front-runner, and he has more than $5 million in reserve for the race.

The most corrupt Landrieu has lost to the most incompetent Nagin in New Orleans.

Mr. Judd: Don't bet against them race baiting in the most blatant manner possible. The politics in LA are as dirty as the Mississippi River.
