    Well, if you aren’t wanted in the private sector, perhaps you can fool people into thinking you’d make a good politician. It’s happened many times before. Why would any successful person want to associate themselves with either party is beyond comprehension.

    how about no daubenmire? this guy already has proven he is not worthy.
    remember his party crashing in Gambier? some residents won’t
    forget that. and now he thinks he is ready for a seat in government.
    maybe he could crash congress too..

    Wow, too funny. Hey, maybe “Coach” Dave can win the primary (let us hope!) so that he can embarrass himself with winning only 15% of the vote in the general election.
