Quick-draw Mcgraw


While we're on the subject of wacky Democratic governors,
word in Nashville
has it that Tim McGraw is seriously considering a run at the governor’s mansion
in 2010. He's been floating the idea for a few years now, but with
the recent thrashing of lawyer Bob Tuke by Lamar Alexander in last month’s
senate race, Tennessee Dems have been casting about desperately for a high-profile
Democrat not named Harold Ford to take on Bill Frist, who is almost certainly
going to run. And they could do a lot worse, I suppose, than the Indian Outlaw. Which is
saying something.

And yes, that would make Faith Hill the first lady of Tennessee.
