Dobbs on Prez Bid: 'I Cannot Say Never'

A story in today’s Wall Street Journal has kicked off the latest round of fevered Lou-Dobbs-for-President speculation. Perhaps with one eye on his ratings, CNN’s Mr. Dobbs is still playing coy about a possible independent bid, telling the paper: “”I haven’t got the personality or nature to be a politician,” but adding, “I cannot say never.”

Say what you will about Mr. Dobbs’ populism and his obsession with illegal immigration, but at least there’s evidence of significant public support for his platform — which is more than you can say about that other independent who’s flirting with a presidential run.
