Let us make this perfectly clear:
The first candidate — for House, Senate or President — who proposes that the day after the Super Bowl be declared a national holiday, will get our full and utter support.*
Can we all rally around this now? We can even name it after someone. “It’s Norman Rockwell Day!” Everyone loved Norm!
Get on it, candidates.
Bob Kerrey. At this point the MSM outlets aren’t even bothering to get quotes from him. Either that or he’s holed up in his Greenwich Village loft with Joey and Chandler playing foosball, waiting on Governor Dave.
Which he said he woudn’t do.
In the mean time, Governor Dave still left the door cracked just a tad. Did not say “absolutely not”.
Which only means Kerrey will just wait him out, since Heineman has to decide first.
And we’ll just throw this out: There are signs — slight though they may be — that the economy may be picking up. Now of course President Obama is not going to get full credit for this, if it does indeed turn into a recovery. But he would probably get some, and it would make it all that much harder for the Mitt Romney campaign.
And any Administration job that could come along with it for Governor Dave could be that much iffy-er.
Which may make the Senate gig more attractive.
If he wants it.
And Democrats, if Kerrey doesn’t work out, Oscar winning filmamker Steve Lustgarten is your man.
For now on we’re watching all our Super Bowls in North Platte.
*Especially if it’s Spencer Zimmerman.
