Could be regarded as someone who can get the nomination under the right circumstances. The conservative base loves the guy, especially after the recall election last year, which, if anything, showed that he's a durable political force. But I doubt that he helps much in the Midwest or even helps to win Wisconsin, and he's a bit of a lightning rod. Walker is just another politico with ties to oligopolistic business interests and large banks.

Corruption's everywhere. We have a system that promotes and legitimizes gouging, price fixing, cronyism and similar frauds as a reward to those with position and pull. It is a society where our elected leaders are for sale to the highest bidder and the high bidders continue to fix the game to their advantage.

I'd venture to say that up to 70 percent of our elected representatives (both R's and D's) need to resign their office. They, and especially those in leadership positions, have been compromised by big money donations, and oftentimes directly profit off of their offices through insider trading (which they have legalized for themselves!).

Right now, it's pick your poison. We don't have a free market. If it isn't properly regulated by the government in the public interest, it is managed by cartels who set prices for themselves and buy off the politicians in the process. Continue to vote for Republicans and Democrats and we will continue to get this.

Does Neil Patrick Harris still live in New Mexico? Politics are getting lame.

Virginia should be competitive, but a combination of Sen. Mark Warner's money and disarray within the state GOP ranks pretty much guarantees that he will not have a competitive re-election race. Gov. McDonnell, who might have given Warner a race, is facing an FBI investigation into large gifts that he received. That leaves the field open to the Tea Party, who's using corruption within the state GOP to take power.

Texas is one of those states that could be trending Democratic if demographic trends hold and the party continues to mobilize there, especially with Hispanic voters. But for now, Republican strength will continue to hold, as is the case in most oil states. That's good news for Jim Cornyn, who likely won't face substantial opposition to his re-election.

Lamar Alexander could attract a primary challenger from his right, especially if his vote on immigration becomes an issue. But otherwise, he looks safe. TN has been trending strongly GOP for several years now, to the point where they now practically control the political operation in the state, outside of pockets in Nashville and Memphis.

Sen. Tim Johnson is retiring after two terms in the Senate. He's been ill for a while now, so it comes as to no surprise. This sets up a scenario where Republicans can score a likely pickup opportunity for themselves. The Dems will likely go with Rick Weiland, who used to run Sen. Tom Daschle's office in the state. But it is much more like that former Governor Mike Rounds will be the next Senator from SD. He has a heavyweight political operation in the state, and that has deterred other Democrats from entering the race. But SD is lot like North Dakota and Montana in that they are conservative states who often do elect Dems to statewide office. It all depends upon the candidate and wider circumstances. Unlike in larger states, oftentimes retail politics does make a difference here and that is often difficult to pick up in polling.

Sen. Tim Scott has strong political allies with Tea Party groups and mainstream GOPer's. He should have no problem getting elected to a term in his own right.

Lindsey Graham, neoconservative sidekick to John McCain, could face a Tea Party challenger next year. Certainly the SC Democrats are no threat to him, it is those inside the party that could give him trouble.

Prediction: Jack Reed will win re-election by the widest margin of all Senate races in 2014. The Democratic party machine practically runs this small state.
