Lou Dobbs for president, eh? Well, there’s always room for an angry populist to stoke the fires of protectionism and the class struggle.
True, most of the celebrities like Dobbs who talk about running for office are more interested in gratifying huge egos and boosting sales of whatever they’re selling at the moment. Remember Warren Beatty’s run? Donald Trump, a CEO for the Oval Office? Jesse Ventura?
At least a Dobbs’ candidacy would invite some scrutiny, accountability, for the contradictions and economic illiteracy he spouts. And surely it would pose at least a minor political conundrum to Democrats who share his views, folks like Senators Byron Dorgan or Sherrod Brown, for example: Support the cause or the party?
Although, why go for a copy when the original is available? Eugene V. Debs for President!
