We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

Talk about a powerhouse ticket in Kentucky. Mark Hebert over at WHAS 11 in Louisville reported on a meeting between Congressman Ben Chandler and Louisville Mayor Jerry Abramson and the speculation is that the two may be considering a run for the governor's race in '07.
The last time Ben Chandler ran for governor, he picked Louisville businessman Charlie Owen as his running mate. A meeting Tuesday raised the possibility if Congressman Chandler runs again, another Louisvillian, Jerry Abramson, might be his lieutenant governor running mate.
This is certainly an interesting situation and as the article speculates, a Chandler/Abramson ticket would be incredibly strong and a definitive favorite. Many have been calling for both to run for governor.
One scenario could be Chandler running one term then going to the Senate, assuming Bunning doesn't run again. It's a distinct possibility. This would leaver Abramson, an established and successful executive running the governor's office. It's sheer speculation at this point but it's certainly an interesting possibility. The only catch is that were that ticket to lose, both men's political careers would be over, without question.
What are your thoughts? Who would replace Chandler in the 6th Congressional district?
