A new GOP political game - "Follow the loser"

Bob Corker, currently under fire within his own GOP ranks, is playing a new political game this election cycle. It's called "follow the loser."
The Knoxville News Sentinel on Sunday (2/27/06) reminded readers of a common issue that has spelled defeat for other high profile statewide GOP candidates - at first refuse to release federal tax returns, and then when you do, show that you did not pay taxes.
Bill Brock did so in 1976, handing democrat Jim Sasser a winning issue.
Winfield Dunn did so in 1986, handing democrat Ned McWherter a winning issue.
Corker is following suit.
Needless to say, it appears that state GOP leaders see the writing on the wall for Corker and for their party if Corker wins the nomination in August. While Democrats I know smell blood in anticipation of a Corker candidacy in November.

No way Corker can win if he's the nominee. Republicans fret over his sorts of problems - not paying taxes, flip flops on abortion and other issues, raising taxes, and Tennessee Republicans and swing voters certainly will not forget about his coziness to Don Sundquist.

Stick a cork in him. He's done.

I hate to tell polly hill but, looking at SUSA's 50-state poll of Tennessee on Bush's favoribility numbers and issue numbers, it's practically Harold Ford's race to lose.
