George Allen comeback?
There's been a lot of talk on the net and throughout the blogs about a George Allen comeback sometime soon which was capped off yesterday by the release of a PPP Poll which states President Obama's approval/disapproval at 47/49 while the good Governor's sits at 50/38. I personally am a huge fan of George Allen, think he has been one of the greatest public officials that we have seen in Virginia history, and would really like to see him run for office again. I'd like to get your feedback on this so leave a comment stating 2 things: 1. Weather or not you'd like to see Sen. Allen run for office again and 2. If you would like to see him run again, what office should he run for?
I think a lot of us would like to see George run for Senate again either against Webb or Warner. I would love to see him comeback and beat Webb, but a race between the two Governors of Virginia who are without a doubt the most popular in recent history would be quite the race to watch. The only other thing I could really see George running for is President which I see to be a bit of a long shot at this point, but without a doubt I would support 100% a George Allen for President campaign. If it means anything Sen. Allen was leading the polls in 06 for the 08 race before the macaca debacle. These are the two offices that make the most sense. We really need to put up a strong candidate to run against Webb in 2012 and George would be one of the strongest we could find. Additionally along these lines other than the President, or Vice President George Allen has basically done it all. Running again for the Senate I could see happening but George has been a member of the House of Delegates, a United States Congressman, Governor of Virginia, and a member of the United States Senate so in my mind he can either go back to the Senate and basically return to where he was or he can look up and look ahead and the only place you can look ahead to from the United States Senate is the Oval Office.
