Did Lou Dobbs resign his post as CNN’s grumpy anchor so he could run for president in 2012? Joe Conason in Salon:
Having observed the former CNN anchor for many years, including a number of recent appearances on his nightly broadcast, I suspect that he may well nurture ambitions to run for president, as reported in the trade press—and could mount a formidable campaign drawing upon the same resentful remnant that Republicans hope to mobilize in 2012. Except that he probably won’t be running as a Republican.
The probable anti-Obama field so far? Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich, and, now, Lou Dobbs. It’s no wonder that 2012 looks to be a disaster. But for whom?
