An Epiphany. Sort of.

Happy Epiphany, dear readers!  Things have been pretty quiet in The Neighborhood during the holidays, but since today is the twelfth day of Christmas, here's a little treat:

Mr. Rogers is considering a run for Governor in 2010.

A Press & Argus article cites a report from MIRS:
The Michigan Information & Research Service Inc. quoted Rogers in a recent story saying he knows he will have to raise a lot of money if he were to run for governor, but that he is confident he can raise the funds.

“I'm just not sure yet,” he told MIRS about a possible run in 2010 adding, “There's a lot I think I could offer if I run for governor in 2010 ... but I have to decide where can I make the best impact.”   

An unnamed source in the MIRS report states Rogers moved the idea of running for governor to the front of his mind when a group of “big donors” asked him to run. That source put the chances at 50-50 that Rogers will declare his candidacy next month.
Time to unleash your inner pundit: 

* Take a guess as to who the "big donors" might be.  

* How do you think Mr. Rogers will play outside the cozy borders of the 8th Congressional District?  

* Raise your hand if you'd like to see the Mike vs. Mike Steel Cage Match: AG Mike Cox's smackdown of Blue Cross/Blue Shield should trump Rogers' whiny defense of the Medicare Advantage Program and higher drug prices for seniors.

February should be an interesting month...
