Re: Fwd: good advice for the democrats?
- It's too bad that Obama's already said no to running for higher office
November 04, 2004
Obama Will Not Run in 2008
Calling it as "a silly question," Sen.-elect Barack Obama (D-IL)
pledged "he would resist any overtures to run for president or vice
president before the end of his six-year term as a U.S. senator," the
Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Said Obama: "I was elected yesterday. I have never set foot in the
U.S. Senate. I've never worked in Washington. And the notion that
somehow I'm immediately going to start running for higher office just
doesn't make sense."

- Don't forget that Bobby Kennedy was comparatively a small potato in
1961 and nobody he would become an icon in the Senate in 1964 and
then a frontrunner in the Democratic primaries in 1968.
4 years is a long, long time. But of course, it would be better if
the President was LBJ instead.
