This is GREAT news for Georgians. We will have a legitimate choice now in the Senate Race. Sam Nunn was a Senator's Senator and one of the most moderate voices ever in the Senate.
I am sure Michelle's intellect did not fall far from the Apple Tree. The Nunn family love Georgia and Michelle Nunn would make a great Senator.
Sending in a contribution for her campaign today.
Maybe Zell will come out of retirement. But seriously - Sam Nunn was a good man, and hopefully the acorn doesn't fall too far from the tree. According to her bio at wikipedia.com, Ms. Nunn has sort of a "community organizer" background, but that seems to work for national political candidates nowadays. Here's the portion of the bio I find most encouraging:
"As CEO of Points of Light, Nunn has good relations with the Bush family, as the Points of Light Foundation had derived from President George H. W. Bush and his "thousand points of light" philosophy. Nunn's trip to Texas to meet with George H. W. Bush had been a key element in forming the merger, and Neil Bush, the chair of Points of Light, has characterized Nunn as "a fabulous leader."
So with an endorsement from a Bushie, perhaps we do have a candidate here who can reach across the aisle and work with the opposition to move our country FORWARD.
We really do need some fabulous leadership.
If nothing else we will see how she does in the inevitable debates. She is truly capable of reaching across the aisle as you note above Sebe.
She does have the political pedigree.
I'm gonna look out for Nunn. I still vote for who shares my core principles and beliefs. So she has a 50/50 chance with me already.
Great Funk! She is NOT an Uber-Liberal Nor is She just a plain ole Liberal.She is of Moderate mind and has the where-with-all to appeal to Independents and those not locked into the yoke of Republican extremism.
The only comment I have on this is we may not know much about Michelle Nunn, but we do know a lot about Jack Kingston. Just because a horse wins the Triple Crown, it don't mean that their colt will, or in this case their filly will.
"She just a plain ole Liberal"
According to the Washington Post, "liberal" = "far left"
I will listen to Ms. Nunn and keep an open mind, but Kingston has a long track record of solid service to this congressional district. We are going to miss his respresentation in the House.
