Lest any of you thought otherwise, Sen. Patrick Leahy
announced today via YouTube
that he will be running for re-election in 2010.
With Dems in power in Congress and a Dem in the White House, Leahy's looking at too much fun to call it quits at the age of 69.
In his video announcement for another six-year term, Leahy says he led the fight against the war in Iraq and stood up to the Bush administration and will join President Obama in restoring America's values. "I want to continue to use my experience and seniority to get things done for Vermont."
He's asking his supporters for money, though it is hard to imagine he will need fistfuls of it for his own campaign.
