    This may have been missed by most, but I think it's somewhat humorous:

    WWE's Linda McMahon Explores Senate Run - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    And:

    World Wrestling Entertainment CEO vs. Sen. Christopher Dodd in senate race - El Paso Times
    Thoughts?

    I think one major liability will be her husband. There's no telling what all skeletons he has in his closet. And since she is a Repug, you know the media is gonna dig deep.

    Discuss.

    Man our team is really scraping the barrel. Sad scary commentary. I heard the GOP was trying to recruit ordinary people who had never considered politics before. These folks sure aint ordinary.

    I wonder if Vince will use the tremendous resources of the WWE to help Linda?

    I expect mockery, derision, and numerous references to wwe if she runs.

    It's no longer a if, she is running.

    And there'll be alot more than just mockery, derision and numerous references. Each and every single particle of the skeletons Vince has in his closet will be magnified and harped on by the media.

    Not only his but hers. Do recall, she was the CEO of the company before stepping down to run for office.

    I find it someone interesting that she's running as a republican and Al Sharpton was 'gues host' on one of the major 'brands' of her husband's company. I wonder whether she was involved in that decision and what whether she agrees w/ mr Sharpton's views regarding education reform (a matter he discussed/advertised during the show)

    Well she's already outspending all of the other candidates easily. She's taken out full page ads in all the major Connecticut newspapers, and got some commercials and radio ads I believe.

    I'm curious as to whether she'll be advertising during WWE's programing block in her home state

    that could become a headache in the press later
