She is also the Chair of Rural Outreach for the Senate Democratic Caucus. The shared flood plain of the Yazoo and Mississippi Rivers The Mississippi Delta is the distinct northwest section of the state of Mississippi that lies between the Mississippi and Yazoo Rivers. ...


She is considered by many observers to be a moderate or Centrist Democrat. Lincoln was among the minority of Democrats to support CAFTA and she is opposed to most protectionist measures. She has voted in favor restricting class action lawsuits and tightening rules on personal bankruptcy. She was one of the few Democrats in Congress to vote in favor of the tax cut passed in 2001, though she now advocates scaling back or eliminating the portions of that tax cut, and other tax cuts, that benefit those tax payers with incomes over $300,000. She supports the permanent elimination of the estate tax. Lincoln voted to ban partial-birth abortions and strongly supported the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act to ban lawsuits against gun manufacturers and distributors.

Miscellaneous

Some experts and pundits initially considered Lincoln to have been a possible running mate for presidential candidate John Kerry in the 2004 election.

Looking ahead to 2008, a Democratic party movement has already begun to draft Lincoln as the Presidential nominee for 2008.

It does not appear that Lincoln is considering a bid at this time. She is up for re-election to the Senate in 2010. 2008 (MMVIII) will be a leap year starting on Tuesday of the Gregorian calendar. ...
