Incumbent, "Twofeathers," and Mr. X
I'll start with the two candidates I am quite sure are running. Governor Phil Bredesen is being talked up all over the place as a contender for the White House in 2008, so what does that mean in terms of his re-election campaign? Will it be energized enough (and not too distracted) to withstand the attacks that some want to see launched against it?
I'll come back to that later, maybe even tomorrow, because I want to get right to Carl Twofeathers Whitaker. In 2002, Mr. Whitaker (or does the "Twofeathers" always go with the "Whitaker"?) ran for Governor as an Independent and, according to his recent press release, finished fourth of eighteen candidates. (The way to verify this is to check the Secretary of State's page.) In 2006, Carl will be running for a party: the Independent America First Party of Tennessee. The issues that will be his focus are "Tenn Care, illegal aliens, ,jobs, workman's compensation, hunger and poverty."
The unknown of this race continues to be the GOP outcome. Are they being nice to Bredesen and essentially letting him beat their guy (could it be Fred Thompson?), or are they really really busy coming up with the perfect plan to unseat him? Oh, the excitement.
Coming around again to Bredesen: what is the impact of the TennCare reform plan? What about the identification issue (for undocumented residents)?
