BREAKING: Warner leaves presidential race
Just in from CNN and other news agencies, we find out that Mark Warner is deciding not to run for President in 2008. I personally was very enthusiastic about his potential candidacy, and I know the people over at Georgia for Warner, like Stephen Deak from Gwinnett, are going to be shocked. It's surprising that he would step aside at just the moment when he's best positioned to take the national stage, but I can't fault him for putting his family first. I think the Democratic Presidential primary is going to turn vicious, to say nothing of the general election, and without his family on the trail with him it would be very tough to ride out the inevitable dips. So farewell, Mark Warner, hello Bill Richardson - make Georgia part of your campaign strategy!
