Closed Primaries and Ol' Russ

Not Buck ponders the possible end of Russ Potts in light of the federal court ruling that almost closes the door to the stratagem that saved Potts in 2003.

I have to agree that if anyone can find a way to get on the ballot and win, it's probably Potts. However, in the 2005 gubernatorial sweepstakes, he did say he would not run for the Senate again in 2007.

Maybe he won't. But this ruling might help solidify that promise, just in case he was having any second thoughts.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man
