Eight Holiday Wishes For The Eighth Night of Hanukkah

December 8, 2010

5. Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) might wish that the Maine Tea Party activists are bluffing about their great mystery candidate, supposedly set to take her on early next year. Or, at least, that the candidate is not as formidable as the Tea Party Patriots are making him or her out to be.

6. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), who wasn't even sworn in yet when the National Republican Senatorial Committee put out their first hit on him, has to wish for Rep. Shelly Moore Capito (R) to pass, for a second time, on a Senate race. Capito is believed to prefer the gubernatorial race, and if she ends up there instead, Manchin will likely face a far less threatening challenge.

7. Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) has to wish for his early outreach to the Tea Partiers who voted out Sen. Bob Bennett (R) will spare him the fate his colleague met. Bonus wish: Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R) decides not to run. Now that Chaffetz has launched a new leadership PAC, BudgetHawks.com, that wish is looking less and less possible.

8. Sen. Dick Lugar (R-Ind.), who continues to break with the Republicans with increasing regularity, will likely face a Tea Party challenge. Lugar is preparing for a fight and says he won't be caught off guard -- but he also has to wish for his highly respected name in Indiana and distinguished tenure to be enough carry him past a strong primary opponent.
