Go Henry! It is probably wishful thinking though. Coburn's Old Testement style of thinking probably sells well in Ok. If you aren't on the fringe, you probably can't get elected. I had to laugh the time when Coburn publicly stated at a conservative conference that even soft porn like Penthouse, and Playboy leads to homosexuality. He said as though he was Moses or something.

I am not sure if all the men at this conservative conference agreed with him. It is probably the one thing that keeps them from cheating on their wives.

I don't think Henry will invite Obama to campaign for him. That would cause him to lose by 40 points. I am sure Coburn will invite Palin and she will speak her nonsense that the masses of the state view as absolute truth. Ok can have her.

Looks like Reid shouldn't have Obama come campaign for him either. The LVRJ poll showed 17% of respondents are now LESS likely to vote for Reid because of Obama while only 7% more likely. After VA, NJ, and Mass, i think Obama's campaigning days are over.

Coburn didn't state those remarks, someone on his staff did; Michael Schwartz.

Harry Reid has tried his best. Maybe he isn't the most dynamic politician in the world or the best campaigner, but I think his honesty is the reason he is behind. At least he has a stable personal life and doesn't bring his mistress on his trips and lie about it on tv like Nevada's GOP governor. You got to not forget about the John Ensign scandal.

I thought that it is anti-incumbancy that is the problem in Nevada. I'll be going there in a few weeks, and I know the economy is horrible out there. The motel prices are extremely inexpensive. I could stay two nights in Tahoe for less than it would cost in the Boston area for 1 night. I can see they are hurting.

So typical of Rasmussen to try get a popular democrat into the race, when he has publicly said he isnt running!

Effing Rasmussen and their secret left leaning ways!

So representing the views of a large majority of the state makes Coburn "on the fringe?"

At least in Oklahoma, the fringe is the far left.
