Post-Health Care, Which Democrats Could/Should Face Primaries?
I suppose Mr. Arcuri of New York is the leading answer to that question. But really, given the make-up of their districts I'd think Mr. Barrow of Georgia and Mr. Lynch of Massacusetts could be more appealing targets. And of course Mr. Lipinski is damn fortunate Illinois has already held its primary for the 2010 elections.

Add Jason Altmire to the list. He's only in office thanks to the unions - and needless to say, they are not at all pleased with him.
I think our district's incumbent Alan Mollohan (one of Congress' "most corrupt) v. long time State Sen. Mike Oliverio is an extremely interesting primary.
I'd call that more bizarre than interesting. What Democratic constituencies would be interested in voting for Oliverio? If Oliverio were running as a Republican it'd be one thing, since he basically is one. But otherwise, well, it's a peculiar challenge.
the term Democrat in WV is meaningless. Most of our elected leaders are more Republican than Democrat. Look at our Governor, how is he not a Republican? So my guess would be the same constituencies that voted for Manchin.
