Easley Will Not Run... For Anything

According to a report by James Romoser of the Winston-Salem Journal, Governor Easley says that he won't run for any office in 2008. About all he would leave himself open for is an appointment in some future Democratic administration. Responding to rumors that he might run for Sen. Dole's seat he said...

"I think I would find the legislative process frustrating. I mean, it's frustrating enough when you're chief executive. I just don't think the Senate would be my highest and best use,"

Let him retire gracefully

In a way he's going out at the top of his game.

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

I posted this in the diaries earlier.

I think this rules out 08, but then again a candidate saying "No, I won't run" can be translated into Spanish as "Yes, I'm definitely running."
So.

Or Chinese

Or he just doesn't want to be caught up in the crazy mess that can happen in NC in a presidential year. He would be top of the ticket in 2010. He would rule. Cake walk.
