Kos and Nate Silver agree: Emil Jones should replace Obama. Well, technically they want a "seatwarmer" for 2010, which would allow for a real primary to forge a strong Democratic senator, and Jones is an obvious choice. There's some good discussion in the comments at FiveThirtyEight, noting that, for instance, two years of Emil Jones might be two too many.
