Slade Gorton

A former U.S. Senator and Washington State Attorney General, Slade Gorton served on the 9/11 Commission.

Run For Senate First

Sometimes it is well to take a person like Sarah Palin at her word. Perhaps she is genuinely sick of the constant harassment and at the cost to Alaska of the never-ending Freedom of Information demands. Clearly, being governor isn't nearly as much fun as it once was.

I doubt that she will be a serious candidate for president. However, I can easily see her as a candidate for the Senate, the one place from which she can be seriously considered for a presidential run two or three election cycles from now.
