The Republicans who hope to take over retiring Senator Zell Miller's Georgia seat have to feel a bit more confident after watching the debacle of the Democrats' primary debate:
In a freewheeling debate televised statewide Sunday night, the candidates mostly bickered among themselves. One even lashed out at the reporters asking the questions, and another was accused of threatening to hire a hit man to kill his ex-wife. That candidate, millionaire entrepreneur Cliff Oxford, laughed off the assertion and the moderator called it "over the line." ...
Emory University political scientist Merle Black called the Democrats' chances grim for holding on to Miller's seat. About their Sunday debate, Black said, "Pathetic. That was amateur hour."
So far, the best candidate for the seat appears to be current Rep. Denise Majette, best known for unseating one of the notorious nutcases of the last session of Congress, former Rep. Cynthia McKinney, who intends on running for Majette's seat in November. Majette has a finance problem from her late decision to enter the race, and the lack of a clear frontrunner has fueled the hardball politics being played out by the Georgia Democrats.
Whoever wins, they will be well schooled in the politics of personal destruction. It appears they've been learning from the national party over the past year.Sphere It View blog reactions
