I Applied Logic to Tennessee Politics and Got It Wrong

When Nathan Moore broke the story that Democratic state senator Joe Haynes intended to challenge John Wilder for the Lt. Governor's spot, The Oracle expressed skepticism. It appears to have turned out that Moore was right.

As Haynes is hardly a political neophyte, and given that this is a risky move politically, there can be little doubt that considerable thought and behind the scenes effort have preceded this move being made public. It will be interesting to hear the rest of the story behind this as it emerges. In the mean time, The Oracle acknowledges that he will also owe Democrats an apology if they do the right thing by refusing to keep Wilder a heart beat away from the governor's mansion. That is crow that I would gladly eat.
