He'll move. Weasels in both parties do it all the time. And I'm fed up with pests and vermin controlling the process. Down with incumbancy and special interests! Let K Street lobbyists in DC eat our mud.

well this should putt to rest msnbc political leanings. MSNBC is a joke and they have the lowest veiwership of any of the cable channels. Of Course FOX out draws MSNBC by a factor of 8. Mr Schultz will get crushed

Hmmm, another celebrity jumping to politics. We have a community organizer, turned celebrity.... running the country. We have an absolutely disgusting/sleazy comedian celebrity representing Minnesota. Now we can add another TV personality to the list of unqualified people trying to run our state and country. When Sheryl Crow and the Dixie Chicks are in the senate passing bills, it's finally time to pull the plug. It's no wonder Beck has turned loony.

kev - you prefer Larry Craig? He did not resign quickly after he said he would, and I did not hear much protest about that from Republicans or right-wing types.

He lived in Fargo for years and broadcast from there, and I believe he still has a home there. It wouldn't take much to establish residency if he needs to.

"We have to find someone that has a high profile and a national fundraising base, and I can't think of anyone better than Ed Schultz in that regard," said Boucher.

So my take on this is Boucher admitting that he find enough ND Dems willing to back the party in free fall, they can't even get the house rep Pameroy to run

Who?

Umm, this just in ... If the Dems are stupid enough to float another celebrity Communist in November 2010, they're going to go over as well as Janet Jackson at Super Bowl half-time.

you obviously have misread our thoughts we think that he should run in fact we hope he does run. the fact that minn. residents supposedly elected a talk show clown does not imply that the people of North Dakota are soo stpid. But then again once the public sees the results of the ballot issue now open by the court we may see that we in fact did not elect angry al but he was foisted on us by Gearin and Ritchie

People like Ed Schultz, Keith Olberman, Rachel Maddow, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, Glenn Beck are nothing more than egotistical, know it all, talking heads. They lie, exaggerate, tell half truths to further their own agendas. I guess he would fit right in our government.
You can't spew common sense like that on Topix. Be gone!
