There have been rumors circulating that some want Dole to run for Governor. I have avoided them since I do not see her actually leaving Washington to grace us with her presence. Real Values, however, is welcoming Dole's bid:
What, you mean Susie Sour Grapes Myrick and her anti-immigration shtick aint setting the world ablaze?
Maybe Dole will promise to do for NC exactly what she has done for the National Republican Senatorial Committee!!!
I for one hope she DOES run for Governor in 2008. I think Attorney General Roy Cooper, State Treasurer Richard Moore, or Lt. Governor Bev Perdue would eat Empty Wig's lunch in a run for Governor. Of course if she did run for Governor, she might actually have to move to NC, which I am sure would cramp her style.
No matter what Empty Wig does in '08 Democrats in NC should be enthusiastic about the chances to re-take this seat. Outgoing Governor Mike Easley would obviously be a hell of a candidate. Even if Easley doesnt run (he says he isnt interested) there are top flight candidates, including Congressman Bob Etheridge.
Nothing brightens a day like reading Real Values take on Mrs. Dole.
