6. When a big red "R" takes his place, his critics will miss him.

In spite of his previous voting record, he did give us one more "warm body" in the "D" column. And, as a result, he brought us one seat closer to having the majority. I seriously doubt that WV will elect another "D" senator in my lifetime. (And if by some miracle, they do, I'm sure whoever it ends up being will be ripped to shreds by left's purists.)

Manchin noted supporters in West Virginia are pressing him to run for governor next year, and hes considering it.
Personally, I'd rather be a Senator than a Governor. I guess different fish prefer different size ponds.
