Arkansas Dems expected to take losses, follow Southern shift to GOP

Little Rock, Arkansas (CNN) - In the shadow of the William Jefferson Clinton Presidential Library, an ironic occurrence is taking shape. As the former two-term president traverses the country, rallying support for Democrats facing tough electoral prospects, his party is bracing for severe losses in his home state of Arkansas.

Embattled two-term Sen. Blanche Lincoln faces a bleak outlook in her bid for re-election, while Reps. Vic Snyder and Marion Berry are opting to retire, opening the door to Republican takeovers of their seats. A Republican and a Democrat are in Arkansas' two other congressional districts, and they're considered safe for the incumbent parties.

    The South really should secede from the Union...and join Iran since the Jesus of the South isn't much different from Osama bin Laden.

    I am so happy where democrats are today they didn’t stand up for their own health care bill, Most of them worried about their own election
    Anti incumbent and Tea party didn’t hurt that much but they hurt themselves

  4. TSUNAMI WARNING: Expected loss of Socialist DemocRATS EXTENSIVE

    This is what happens when you let your party be taken over by Socialist Progressives that think they know better than the poor dumb citizens that vote for them. Obozo, Reid and Pelosi have destroyed the DemocRAT Party with their leftist agenda. Who would have thought "The Messiah" was actually "The Messiah of the Republican Party"!!!

    Its no surprise given the education and illiteracy rate in some southern states that they would ignore what happened while the GOP was running the show.
