But by telling reporters that he would consider a Democrat VP offer, photo-opping with Bloomberg and shouting to the heavens about Bush, he keeps himself in the side-spotlight, particularly as an “independent” if the Bloomberg ticket someone comes to fruition. And he also gives himself a shot in a Democrat administration, which he must believe is the most likely. So, you know, good luck to him and all that. (Senator, should MJ save you a seat when the President comes to town?)
As we all wait to see the results of the Democrat’s Tony! Toni! Toné! Raimondo sweepstakes, it’s interesting to see that the Dem leaders are willing to roll the dice with TR, but the rank and file hate the whole concept with a passion. We get a kick every time we see the Dem’s lead blogger try to defend Raimondo (“he gives money to Dems!”, “we don’t know what he really thinks!”, “Ben Nelson likes him!”), then the commenters simply point out that last week the guy was a running as a Republican.
Of course the simple fact is that many Dems are getting more and more of a feeling that Scott Kleeb is not interested in taking on Johanns, and they desperately want someone — anyone — to run. Oh, and Raimondo will give them some money too.
It’s gotta be
Turner Gill Pelini, right?
