Watching Obama, Biden and Specter, then later seeing
Philly mayor Nutter speaking, I realised they along with Ed rendell just efectively KILLED THE GOP in Pennsylvania. There will be some State Senators and Reps, but their national presence is over - Toomey will not get many votes, and there is NO ONE in line after him.

This is history.

1. And think of what that potentially means for future Presidential elections....
Specifically, the Dem candidate not needing to spend as much money/time there, free to be on the electoral offensive in the republican's home base.

2. If that is the case, the GOP will effectively blame Mike Steele, and he'll resign his chairmanship.
Rather than dig deep to find and admit what's wrong with the GOP, they'll scapegoat their beloved puppet black conservative. I think it's very sad.

5. And by "really sad", you "mean reall funny", right?
Are Hip-Hoppin Steele's days finally numbered?

4. As someone born and raised in PA, I must respectfully disagree
Republicans still have a lopsided majority in the State Senate, and the Democrat's majority in the State House would be gone in a three vote shift. The state have NEVER elected a Democrat as Attorney General, and for the past half century voters have switched back and forth from Democrat to Republican for Governor exactly every eight years.
