The coming snore

Posted By on Tue, Feb 9, 2010 at 6:04 AM

If the U.S. Senate race winds up pitting Rep. John Boozman against U.S. Sen. Blanche Lincoln, bring some caffeine. The oratory promises, well, it promises nothing, Brummett writes.

So my prevailing thought while watching U.S. Rep. John Boozman on Saturday as he announced his Republican candidacy for the U.S. Senate is that I dread his debates with Blanche Lincoln.

He stands a chance to make her look good. No, allow me to amend. He stands a chance to make her look not that bad.

And she’ll return him the favor.

That assumes, of course, that both get that far, as I suspect they will. Their race would be an epic one, most likely. But it would not be a rhetorically resplendent one.

For what it's worth count me as one who 1) believes Lincoln will be the Democratic nominee and 2) is not ready to declare Boozman the automatic nominee in a fractured field before an unpredictable electorate.
