Re: Louisiana petitions Obama for secession.

From the "no shit" department: Governor not signing Tennessee's secession petition -- Auto play video on the page.

Gov. Bill Haslam said Tuesday he'd heard about Tennessee's petition. He's not a fan.

"I don't think that's a valid option for Tennessee," he said. "I don't think we'll be seceding."


Secession wasn't good for Tennessee after voters approved it 2-to-1 in 1861, and it probably wouldn't work out too well now, either, historians said.

"It was hell," said Jim Hoobler, senior curator of art and architecture for the state. "I mean, there was a massive invasion, occupation and defeat."
