Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

The Georgia Senate race again

In a quickie op-ed, I argue that President-elect Obama really wants incumbent Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss to win next Tuesday’s run-off in Georgia.

My conclusion:

I’ve almost convinced myself that President-elect Obama shouldn’t campaign on behalf of Jim Martin, if he knows what’s good for himself and his administration. Indeed, if he could, he should film a commercial for Saxby Chambliss, the last barrier between him and an agenda driven by the demands of congressional Democrats.

And, tempted as I might be to vote for Jim Martin to bring out the worst in the Democratic Party, I’m going to support my new president and put country above party by marking my ballot for Saxby Chambliss.

If you want to see the tortured chain of reasoning that led me to this conclusion, read, as they say, the whole thing.
