Lou Dobbs for President? Don’t laugh.

CNN host Lou Dobbs posted a commentary on his website last week predicting a surprise new presidential candidate in 2008. The mystery candidate is an “independent populist … who understands the genius of this country lies in the hearts and minds of its people and not in the prerogatives and power of its elites.”
Friends say Dobbs is seriously contemplating a race for the first time, although it’s still unlikely, reports The Wall Street Journal.
