I think he should retire and the Dems should run the most liberal AA they can find. Make sure that reparations is the key issue.

(my grain is pretty straight today)
Hollings is VERY beatable. They wouldn't be talking about running Gilda Cobb-Hunter if he wasn't. Cobb-Hunter is a fairly obscure state legislator, but she's got the proper, uh, ethnic qualifications. As a black female in a heavily black state, she can play the victim card to the hilt--every time the GOP challenger gets the least bit rough with her, she can play the race card like Al Sharpton, AND the sex card, a la Hillary with Rick Lazio. She'd lock down 90% of the black vote and probably get enough guilty white carpetbagger liberals to have a chance at winning. It's a semi-desperate strategy, but the Rats are getting fairly desperate down here.
Inez Tenenbaum, maybe. She was about the only Democratic officeholder to survive the Mark Sanford-led GOP tidalwave in 2002 and is thought to be doing a decent job as Superintendent of Education.
I don't think a white male Democrat has any chance of winning statewide in SC right now. Lindsay Graham proved that by his win of Strom's seat.
