The Gilmore Factor

NRO's Jonathan Martin interviews Jim Gilmore and asks about his possible return to electoral politics. Needless to say, the former Governor is keeping a lot of options open, including the White House, the Senate and a return to Richmond. While there's not a lot of new ground covered in this piece, there was this bit of fun:

Third, and perhaps most appealing to a pol with a long memory like Gilmore, another run at the governor’s mansion would offer him a shot to take on the man who ran against his record and denied him that legacy.

“I’d love to run against Mark Warner,” Gilmore admits with the slightest of grins.

I'm sure he would. The question is, would anyone else love it?

"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
