AEI: Little movement likely in Senate after 2006 elections

The American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research offers this article regarding the 2006 Senate races. For the most part, they are right on the money. Santorum is fighting for his political life. I think that they underestimate Chafee - simply for his bankbook and liberal leanings - as well as Shelley Moore Capito in West Virginia. About the Tennessee race, AEI had this to say:

"In Tennessee, Rep. Harold Ford (D) is a young, impressive African-American, with an independent streak. But Ford’s overall voting record is too liberal for this conservative state. Republicans have a large, strong field, including former Reps. Ed Bryant and Van Hilleary."

For those who don't know, AEI is one of the nation's best and most influential think tanks. So, who loses most from this assessment - Harold Ford, who is "too liberal," or Bob Corker, who is polling so poorly that he doesn't even make AEI's radar?
