Actually - I'll take a knee-jerk conservative to an uber-liberal Democrat any time. But Nunn is an interesting addition to the field. With her name recognition and gender, she should have little difficulty in getting the Democratic party base mobilized.
How strong a candidate she will be remains to be seen.
Ditto what Sebe says minus the 'taking a knee jerk conservative to an uber-liberal Democrat'. Take away Sebe's animus towards we Liberal Democrats, he should be pleased to know that Ms. Nunn is as Moderate as they come and have no difficulty casting a vote for her, rather than the, to be sure, just plain old Jerk Republican she will be up against.
Sam Nunn is fun, Sam Nunn is young, put Sam Nunn in Washington...oh wait my bad, that catchy tune was for a different Democrat named Nunn when they initially ran for Senate. Sam Nunn was a good Senator from Georgia, no doubt about it. But the breed of U.S. Senate Democrats in the early 70's and some even into the 80's was a whoooole lot different from the breed we have running around now, catering to just about every special interest group that there is. Michelle Nunn has the name, and perhaps she is a moderate, but some of you know what the Bible says about "luke warm", and in most cases, that's how I view a moderate. We don't know a lot about Ms. Nunn at this point, but in most cases, politicians do stick with party lines, and I know at the state and federal level, I don't like what I see when we speak of the Democratic platform. We may not know a lot about Ms. Nunn but we do know a lot about a guy by the name of Jack. Let's hope he is the guy to replace old Saxby in Washington.
Basically I'm in agreement with sebekm and MikeLongCounty.
We do know Jack Kingston and I'm more concerned with the race to fill his seat here at home. Don't know who I will support in our congressional race.
Career politicians of both major parties are at the root of most of our difficulty and blind allegiance to either party has given us nothing but gridlock.
Nunn's daughter is a fresh face and I like that. She comes from a family well entrenched in politics and I don't like that.
At any rate I think we will have an interesting campaign.
Well Jack Kingston is about as much a career politician as they come. Jack is good about coming home and talking like a middle of the road politician. But when he returns to Washington he behaves in a very strict hard line conservative Republican partisanship manner.
I will forever remember when he played the court jester in Congress when he went to the floor as televised on C-Span parading around with a mirror mounted on a broom stick with burning cigarettes. He was displaying hard line Republican views of a Democratic bill that was coming up for vote.
Of course, Choir boy Jack, was trying to say the Demo Bill was all smoke and mirrors. He looked the fool. But what can you expect from a failed insurance salesman who decided he could do better becoming a career politician.
The State Of Georgia has always been dominated by Republicans over the years, but it is possible that a Democrat could win.
Not sure if I could support anyone that favors fixing Obamacare versus repealing it. This is the largest piece of legislation that will have the most impact on the demise of America. It's too bad that she doesn't see it.
*Jack Kingston may behave in a conservative hard-line fashion, but he has brought home the bacon to this district. That's usually how our politicians are evaluated - no? He has had a very successful career - as have other "career politicians" - and nobody - I mean NOBODY - is a bigger fool than Joe Biden, especially recently. By that measuring stick, Kingston is a stone-cold, sober Puritan.
*Obamacare Must Go. The country - even DEMOCRATS - is/are beginning to see the light.
*"Sam Nunn is fun, Sam Nunn is young, put Sam Nunn in Washington..."
If I was his jingle-meister back when, I would have suggested this slogan:
"Vote for Sam: He's Second To Nunn"
