Political Prediction!

I was enjoying a McRib in a brand-new McDonald's restaurant earlier today, and CNN was on in the lobby. Lou Dobbs was teasing his show on Wolf Blitzer's show, and the following (synthesized) exchange occurred:

Wolf: Do you think there's the potential for a third party candidate to come in and make some hay in the 2008 election?

Dobbs: You know Wolf, as I've traveled this great country, I've met so many people from the middle class who aren't being represented in Washington. So yes, I do think a third party candidate could be successful next fall.

And based on that, I predict that Dobbs will be running. Everything he's been doing the last couple years could be construed as to be laying the groundwork for some kind of "Center Party".

McDonalds has a "lobby"?

Just what we need - Lou "(angry-fist-waving)-I-said-panic" Dobbs being elected for anything.

1) That's what we called it. Although it's technically a dining room.

2) I di'n't say I liked it. But the way he said it was right out of the "I'm running for president" handbook.

3) It could be as close as we get to Bob Dobbs running the joint.
