OMG this is awesome!!
Richard Painter, former George W. Bush ethics lawyer, has announced that he is running for Al Franken's seat as a Democrat.
And not just as any Democrat but on Paul Wellstone's Democrat Farm Labor Party.
That means even though he is a former Republican, he is apparently ready to accommodate BIG PICTURE politics and like Wellstone, embrace a wide field of liberals as well.
I've been watching him on TV and he strikes me as kind of a JFK Democrat but Bernie would like him, too. He's not a divider, he's a uniter.
