Warner Won't Challenge Allen

Governor Warner will apparently announce today that he will not challenge George Allen for his Senate seat, according to the AP and today's Potomac News.

Of course, insightful minds in the Virginia blogosphere knew this months ago.

This is a smart move by Warner. He obviously thinks he's presidential timber, and the last Senator to be elected President was John F. Kennedy, and even he probably really lost, since Nixon's statesmanship --- contrast Algore's --- prevented him from challenging the results in Illinois.

And remember, Jimmy Carter had been out of office for two years when he ran for the Democrat nomination for President, and won.
