Word is that sometime next week a candidate will announce that they are running for President in 2008. It's a Democrat and they're going to be the first candidate to announce--other announcements won't come for probably almost another full year.
So who is it? I can feel your suspense....
Well...it's someone we've all had our eye on for awhile, it's someone who can change it al...it's.......Former Senator Mike Gravel!!!!
hmmm....ok...not that exciting, but it is kind of strange.
I know absolutely knowthing about Mike Gravel other then the fact that he was Alaska's Senator from 1968 to 1980, and that would make him approximately 90 years old (just a guess).
Maybe this is just a weird rumor, or maybe not. Either way it does signal a very very early beginning to a Presidential campaign. More to come......
Just in case anyone wants to check it out, here's the info:
