Lisa as the Libertarian candidate...d'ya think it'll happen?
She'd have to be able to prove to the L's that she'd be a shoe-in in the fall...is that likely?

She's also have to be pretty damn sure she could win this way...because it would destroy any shot at her getting the nom against Begich in '14, or any other Repub nomination in any other race.

What do you guys think?

And do you think it helps or hurts McAdams if she does go for it?

4. Joe Miller should have run as AIP, which would have been .
more honest. He sounds just like old Joe Vogler.

3. I don't think the Libertarians will accept her.
I'm not sure about whether it would hurt or help McAdams. The upside is that Lisa and Joe would be so busy fighting amongst themselves that Scott could take the high road and impress people with his reasonableness. The downside is that, at least according to that poll around the time of the election, Lisa could beat both of them. I'm not sure about that now, though.

The stark contrast between McAdams and Miller is good. Lisa kind of muddies the waters.

6. She is apparently going to run as a "write-in" candidate.
Doesn't Miller already have the Alaskan Libertarians??

7. The Libertarians have their own candidate, I think.
