Biggie of the Day

A biggie you might have missed.
Chris Dodd announced he will run for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008, saying problems at home and abroad meant it was time for him to "get out of the bleachers and onto the arena floor."
Announced on Imus in the Morning show. I don't know if Imus asked Dodd about his real prospects of actually being elected. If that's the purpose.
His role as chairman of the Banking Committee — which oversees the nation's banking, financial services and insurance industries — creates new fundraising opportunities, a potential boost for a long-shot prospect like Dodd who must prove he can raise the tens of million of dollars needed to stay competitive in the 2008 presidential campaign.
Imus said he planned to vote for Obama, to Dodd's dismay.
"Now wait a minute, wait a minute," Dodd interjected. "I come on the program, I blow everybody else off, I announce here — at least leave the door open a little bit for me here. ... And I'm your pal — 14 years — you can't just walk away from me. You leave that door open a little bit."
Talk about a farce.
