After winning the Democratic Party's senatorial nomination in South Carolina with little to no effort, Alvin Greene is now considering a 2012 run for the White House. Mr. Greene, who lost his Senate race to incumbent Senator Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina), did manage to garner a primary win, lots of national attention and 28% of the general election votes with nothing more than a "D" after his name so it's not impossible to believe that the donkeys could support him again.
South Carolina's Democratic Party spokeswoman Keiana Page confirmed that on Tuesday an unidentified caller asked about the presidential filing fee and Mr. Greene confirmed to the political website Politico that he had made that call. When asked if he was considering a presidential campaign his response was, "Maybe, I'll have to see." (source)
If his senatorial campaign is any indication, the determining factor for Mr. Greene will only be whether he can afford the filing fee. The fee has not yet been determined for the 2012 election but was $2,500 in 2008.
And judging by the 356,969 votes this 32 year old unemployed man who has been indicted on a felony obscenity charge received last week, there may be enough South Carolinians willing to further embarass their state and the Democratic Party by voting for him again - this time for an even higher office.
