Twisting the Twist

Nathan Moore shares that a "well placed [Tennessee] Capitol Hill source" has informed him that state senator Joe Haynes may be exploring the possibility of challenging John Wilder for Lt. Governor. Moore adds that such machinations might help the Republican majority do the right thing and elect a Republican to the post.

While that thought is right, it is also the reason that The Oracle would tend to doubt that such a palace coup would be forthcoming. Democrats in the senate know that it is irresponsible to place Wilder one heart beat from the governor's mansion. However, they also know that by being responsible they would cede power to the Republicans. When responsibility has such a cost, they will choose to be irresponsible.
