On Warner's Future

The WaPo's Chris Cillizza notes that while on the stump with Tim Kaine recently, Mark Warner and his political future were the main attractions:

Warner certainly gets plenty of practice with his evasions about '08. At each of the four stops throughout southwestern Virginia Thursday, he was barraged by questions about a presidential bid. "Warner '08," shouted a bystander at Java J's coffee shop in Bristol; a man at a Martinsville Chamber of Commerce meeting told Warner matter-of-factly, "Good luck with the presidential"; state Del. Ward Armstrong (D) told a crowd that "President Mark Warner could do a great deal [here he is interrupted by a loud standing ovation] to reforming the Medicaid system."

Warner has created a federal PAC, "Forward Together," and has also started the long process of introducing himself to potential players in the '08 race.

He may run. He may raise a formidable sum of money for himself and others. But I suspect Warner will not be the Democratic nominee in 2008.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man
