Today's the day for Greg Davis (MS-01)...
...and you have to wonder whether Travis Childers would prefer to lose.

Well, it's like this: Greg Davis (MS-01) and Childers are going to do this all again in November anyway. So if Childers loses, he can give it another shot, and hope that he can run without having to be linked too closely with Barack Obama (whom he's never met, remember?):
Tough to do if the Democrats nominate the man, but not outside the realm of possibility. But if Childers wins... he then becomes a super-delegate, which means that he has to do one of three things:
1). Support Obama. Greg Davis (MS-01) will have fun with those ads. So will I, for that matter.
2). Support Clinton. Thus outraging all those progressives that petulantly gave him money because they were told that you can't expect to run real Democrats in Mississippi.
3). Stall for as long as he can. Thus pleasing nobody, but giving him valuable early experience in how to be a properly spineless Democratic Party politician.
So, no real upside there.
