    Too early to tell whether he is serious or just joking around yet. I think its rather hilarious that he seems to think he has a serious shot. I have a feeling by 2008 Minnesota will be heavily trending Republican. I don't foresee Democrats getting back the seat they lost with the Wellstone memorial any time soon.

    Sorry, had to say it.

    He considered this in 2004, realised that couldn't happen then. What's changed?

    I look forward to his run for president in 2020. He can get Ben Stein as his running mate. :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

    I'm a little disappointed. I figured most of the people here were witty enough to appreciate this...guess I'll have to add a hint. Think bumper sticker! :)

    He was the only well known Stein I could come up with at that moment. I can also picture him presiding over the Senate and uttering one of those flat "wow"s when someone proposed a resolution... :D
