Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Well, I Hope So

Martin Longman suggests that Mitch McConnell's coquettish dance with Donald Trump in order to preserve his Senate majority won't work.  That if it appears that Trump is going down in flames with a fractured party squabbling behind him, that will create a wave that will decimate people like Kelly Ayotte.

If we take it as increasingly likely that Clinton will win in November, the next big battle is for control of the Senate.  Knocking off Ayotte, Johnson, Kirk, Toomey and Rubio is going to be the big battle that Democrats need to win.

I hope Booman is right.
