1. So Roosevelt's Major had trouble

adapting to the White House in the beginning as well. Maybe Major Biden knows his White House dog history and is trying to live up to his predecessor and namesake's reputation.

2. You scared me there for a minute. I would worry about Major

if he had bitten either of our current Senators, especially Rotten Cotton.

5. Hattie Caraway is interesting.

She inherited her husband's Senate seat at his death, but went on to win the seat on her own. And, she was a Democrat.

9. Arkansas used to be Democratic. When I moved there, we had a Dem governor, 2 Dem

Senators and a split on House members. And that was only 30 years ago.

10. Yep. Before Asa we had Mike Beebe, a Democrat. Before John Goodman we had

Blanche Lincoln, a Democrat. Before Tom Cotton we had Mark Pryor, a Democrat.

12. Arkansas was reliably Democratic until relatively recently.

The GQP was making stead gains in Arkansas for some time but it only became impossible for a Democrat to win other than a very few local elections during the Obama administration.

Reckon what happened during the Obama administration to make Bubba Joe become such a dependable GQP voter?
