Laugh of the day from George Stephanopoulos:
“… Former New York Gov. George Pataki (R) is being urged by major Republican donors and the party apparatus in Washington to run against Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D) in 2010. While he has not made a final decision on a Senate run, Pataki has told at least one major GOP donor in private that he is not interested in becoming a senator at the age of 64 and would rather run for president in 2012 …”
Sadly, the bar has been lower significantly for qualified presidential candidates recently.
