Iowa True Blue: Thoughts on Governor Mark Warner

Excerpted from this post at Iowa True Blue

I don't want to be like the GOP blogs -- constantly writing about 2008, because even they must know they are in for a butt kicking here in 2006. I want to focus on November. But today Governor Mark Warner dropped out, saying he didn't want to run for president because it essentially would mean that he couldn't spend much time with his family for the next decade or so. Three thoughts. First, Mark Warner is a smart, decent, eloquent, generous, and gregarious Dem who had governed Virginia extremely well. He had an awful lot to offer the Democratic Party, both in Iowa, and the entire country. He had won in Virginia and Our Party desperately needs a Southern Strategy. I sure hope he stays involved in politics, because frankly we need him to.
