While not being fully checked out on the vagaries of
Alabaman state politics, I believe that the major problem that Griffith
ran into was in switching parties while still in office. Artur
Davis would not be suffering from that problem if and when he finally
decided to run for statewide office on a Republican ticket; and if you
do not think that Davis could successfully transition himself from an unsuccessful conservative Democrat to a successful somewhat moderate Republican, then you probably think that all Southerners have horns and a tail anyway.
