U.S. Sen. Christopher Dodd says he is considering running for president in 2008.Yes, but next time... a less disturbing metaphor, perhaps?
"It's an itch," Dodd told The Associated Press during an interview in his Senate office on Monday. "Could grow. Could disappear. It's an itch. It's not a bad word to use." (AP)
Dodd has been in and out of the national spotlight for much of the past decade, but hasn't really been considered anything close to a presidential contender.
Then again, considering the current field... Dodd certainly isn't the worst choice Democrats could make (*cough*Hillary*cough*).
Dodd also commented on the Lamont-Lieberman Senate battle, saying:
"He prevails in all of this," Dodd said of Lieberman. "But it will make the next 18 weeks uncomfortable ... He's gotta pay attention to it, and he is." (AP)Some sort of itchy discomfort, I'm sure. I've got a powder that'll clear that right up.
