The Return of Pop Warner

Steve Kornacki has a long column today on the reemergence of Mark Warner, the former Virginia governor who dropped out of the presidential race last year, ostensibly because he didn’t want to put the strain on his family. With rumors abounding that Senator John Warner might step aside, the other, younger, Democratic Warner is sending unambiguous signals that he’s ready to get back in the game. Which will only serve to stoke the suspicions–never substaintiated in any way–that his decision to leave the presidential race before it even got started was somewhat more complicated than its been publicly portrayed.
