This is really great. Nathan Deal, a pretty great white republican governor and Kasim Reed, a pretty great black democratic mayor of Atlanta working together? I don't have enough data collected to say for sure, but I may agree with Mr. Reed.

To be fair..

Atlanta(and Georgia) is rife with annoying minority libs and art-majoring hipsters who need to get their sub-society's act together, as well as right-wing tea party nut jobs who have a high likelihood of suffering from low IQs..probably due to the "education" they fund from various "sources."

I really like seeing bipartisanship. I think it's effective. I want to like Carter, but his "lineage" in this case is moot, if not a disadvantage. Nathan Deal in my opinion has been VERY GENEROUS to key parts of society in Georgia. He's been one of the first and few high elected officials to visit China on business, he's GREATLY supported higher education and research(although there's work to be done at the Non-UGA, Georgia-Tech and non-Emorys of the state and also in K-12) and he's been fairly solid in terms of corruption. What I'd like to see from the governor is more support for the number one incubator in success of the 21st century human - education. We just can't do with the stratification. It's too much. I would forgo all the social issues liberals press for if we can just continue to support K-12 and higher education. That's just my opinion though. There is only so much budget to go around.

It's a bit of a stretch to believe that since Reed hasn't given his endorsement to Carter, he's leaning towards Deal. At the end of the day he's still a Democrat. If he has national aspirations, he would be committing suicide to back a extremely conservative Republican governor even if that said governor wasn't completely insane. It's not like Deal is a quasi-moderate like a Chris Christie or a true moderate (do any still exist in the Republican party?) like Nelson Rockefeller.

Trust me, if Carter gets the nom, he'll fall in line.

Although, I think you all are right. I don't see any variation possible.

CL has the full quote of what the link at the top only took small pieces of. You are welcome to go find your own sources if you like.

I tend to agree. If he wants to work with the Fascist, I mean Democrat Party, supporting Deal would be tantamount to falling on a sword.

I hope that you are not serious about the "Fascist" remark.
I'm confused enough as it is with all of the frequent labeling of Democrats that goes on. On one had they get labeled as "Marxists" & on the other hand they are called "Fascists".
Poor Jason. He's a moderate Democrat running in a red state but nevertheless, he'll have my vote if he secures the Democratic nomination as this state is in sore need of a thorough spring cleaning in it's government.

I am dead serious about it. The idea about a moderate Democrat is laughable. That concept evaporated decades ago.

Cuz most folks who use those labels have no real understanding what they mean.
