Notoriously boring (but popular in Florida) Democratic Senator and erstwhile Presidential contender Bob Graham is to announce today whether he will run again for his Senate position. The Miami Herald reports:
The 66-year-old lawmaker, who seems to have made a full recovery from major heart surgery in January, was expected to announce today whether he plans to run in one more campaign or retire from a political career that began 37 years ago when he ran for the Florida Legislature.
Seems to have made a full recovery from major heart surgery in January? This is an odd place for the Herald to be dropping drolleries. With all respect to the Senator, nobody I have ever met or known has mades a "full recovery" from major heart surgery in a year - especially not a 66-year old. Some people make a recovery suffcient to permit them to live a reasonably active life - and even to resume activities that are in some respects strenuous.
But a "full recovery?"
UPDATE: He will retire.
