    "Other opportunities?" What? King of France? Grand Imperial Wizard?

    Trent Lott will be just fine. He's done a hell of a lot for Mississippi, just as his congressional predecessor G.V. "Sonny" Montgomery did. And John Stennis, a historic U.S. Senator, occasionally had his votes on record which appeared "anti-black".
    None of 'em's really got anything to prove to anybody.

    Mississippians, with their newly paved roads and running water, will welcome Trent home and laud his accomplishments. He might even be a governor some day.

    You want him, you can have him. He may have fulfilled part of his oath of office by serving his constituency, but he hasn't done shit to improve the country as a whole. Especially that part about supporting and defending the Constitution.

    Shit, the same could be said of each and every Senator. Maybe we can start with Robert "KKKracker" Byrd

    Newly paved roads and running water equally can be attributed to Hayley Barbour's work.

    Another seat the R's will have to defend in '08. GOP Gov, so a GOP appointment for a year.

    But that Republican Senate money has to be stretching awful thin about now.

    Why do I have a feeling that Barbour may appoint himself to fill out Lott's term?

    How much bench depth can either party really have in Mississsippi?

    I honestly don't have the faintest idea.

    It's a Republican state and it's extremely unlikely to switch to the Dems. And there will be a special election early next year to fill the seat.
