Zuckerman for Senate?

March 2, 2010

Heavens, a Mort Zuckerman bid for US Senate in New York would be great fun. Not a guy who loves to press the flesh, but supersmart and interested in getting things done. I just wonder if these CEOs who want to go to Washington fully realize how incredibly boring being a senator is.

Of course, he won’t have to spend loads of time raising money. So that helps. (One of the interesting nuggets from Game Change, the 2008 presidential campaign book, is just how much Hillary hated raising money.)  Disclaimer: I worked for Mr. Z  for a dozen years at U.S.News & World Report.
