“Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson is confident the Democratic Party will offer a quality candidate for the 2008 Senate race.”
(KOTA Televsion, Scottsbluff, Gering, 11/8/07.)
Well, since the rest of us don’t seem to have your inside information (hey, Tony Raimondo is still waiting to be “approached”), and no one else seems to be working at it very hard, we here at Leavenworth Street thought we’d toss out some suggestions.
Since you Dems seem to really like the “used to live in Nebraska, yet still want to live somewhere else” types, here’s who we think could make a good Dem Senate candidate:
Born in Omaha; exudes power, in that patriarch of a powerful family way;
Cons: “Last Tango in Paris”; deceased.
2) Nick Nolte
Cons: Uh, this…
3) Dick Cavett
Cons: Kind of wussy; signature song is called, “Glitter and be Gay” (not that there’s anything wrong with that…)
4) Chris Klein
Pros: Millard West grad; already has campaign experience from movie, “Election”;
Cons: Technically, not old enough; Went a little cuckoo after ex-Katie Holmes married Tom Cruise.
5) Larry the Cable Guy (a/k/a Daniel Lawrence Whitney)
Cons: Probably a Republican; smelly.
So there you go Dems! Pick one of these four gents, or please leave a suggestion of someone yourself! (No Green Party members, please.) Your suggestion has gotta be better than, well, nobody.
On the 232nd anniversary of the creation of the U.S. Marine Corps, The NRSC has put up a splash page with a thank you video to our nation’s troops and a link to be able to send our troops a thank you note (there is no email capture or fundraising ask – simply a way for Americans to express their thanks to our troops this Veterans Day weekend). Take a look.
