Bob Graham talking to Anthony Shriver about gov run



The Daily Beast reports Anthony Kennedy Shriver will decide whether to run for governor within a couple weeks, and also that Shriver's a real hottie. From Jim Defede: ...Former Florida Senator Bob Graham told The Daily Beast that he has spoken to Shriver about the governor's race and the two were planning a face-to-face meeting in the coming week. "I have a great deal of respect for Anthony and all that he has done and the family he represents," said Graham. But an endorsement is unlikely: "I think running for governor is a high aspiration for someone who has never run for office before," Graham added. (Note: Graham has endorsed Sink).

...He can run as an outsider on a total change platform," a supporter said. "A campaign of, 'Throw them all out,' is going to be very appealing to voters this year. And if he did get into the race, he would immediately have notoriety. It would cause everyone to suddenly pay attention."

Added another Democratic source: "Have you seen the guy? He may be the best-looking Kennedy to surface in a long time. Women are going to go crazy for him."
