Cleland v. Chambliss... the rematch?

Saxby Chambliss (R-Chickenhawk) beat Sen Max Cleland in 2002 due mostly to a series of ads that questioned Cleland's patriotism and called him everything, including Osama bin Laden's best friend. Cleland lost both legs and one arm as a result of his service in Vietnam. Saxby didn't serve in the military. He didn't have to because of people like Max.

Needless to say, Chambliss isn't someone you'd want to dine with. He'd probably stab you with a fork, blame the terrorists and then accuse you of cooperating with them. The interesting thing is that someone is doing polling on a rematch for next year... and Chambliss could be in trouble.

A new InsiderAdvantage/Majority Opinion survey in Georgia finds that a rematch of Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) versus former Sen. Max Cleland (D), who lost to Chambliss in 2002, might be the Democratic Party’s strongest hope for reclaiming the Senate seat.

The poll found Chambliss leading Cleland 36% to 24%, with 40% undecided.

Said pollster Matt Towery: "The key to this survey versus other surveys that have been conducted with other potential U.S. Senate candidates is that when you add Cleland to the mix, the undecided vote soars, leaving Chambliss well below the 50 percent mark."

Wonder if people in GA realize that good ole Saxby voted to allow the Administration to tap their phones?
