Senator Ed Schultz? Dems push him as Byron Dorgan replacement for North Dakota

On Tuesday, Senator Byron Dorgan of North Dakota announced he won't be seeking reelection. Now comes word that MSNBC host Big Dumb Ed Schultz is considering a run for his seat (link):
[He] told the Huffington Post that "there is a lot to think about" after he was approached by Democratic leaders in the state about a possible run. But the possibility is there, even if a decision is far off.

"The phone call from [North Dakota Democratic-NPL Party leader] Merle Boucher is certainly new territory for me," said Schultz.

The MSNBC host, who has lengthy ties to the state, said he was called last night by Dorgan who, in a rather suggestive question, asked Schultz how old he was. Hours later Boucher was on the phone asking Schultz to consider a run for the Senate seat.

"I asked him very point-blank if this was an official ask." Schultz said. "He said, 'Yes it is'. I'm flattered. I'm honored."
