    All that hype was just to sell his book.
    This guy is a typical politician.
    Minnesota dodged a bullet on this one

    I hope it is not The New Yorker that had scared Ventura off.
    It's just satire. People should watch more South Park to understand the Obama cover. Do we all have to be politically correct all the time?

    Jesse's not running for the Senate from MN? Thank God! Four unproductive, devisive years with him in the Governor's office were enough. It's unfortunate that the country is titillated by him, much as they are with Britney Spears and the Jolie-Pitt babies. . . .it's just garbage! He's not the answer to our needs in MN or the country.

    The threat to run was just about publicity. Minnesota would never make the same mistake twice and he knows it.

    So what state will he run in?

    He is an idiot but he might as well run for the senate . The person he is running against is Al Franken. You talk about a main loser and a total idiot. Minnesota needs to take their state back from these left wing nut cases. The good regular people of minnesota need to get out and vote. Lord knows that state has elected muslims and every nut around.

    Jesse Ventura is a good man, but it is already a 2 person race. I'd like to see Al Franken in there, an intellectual and a thoughtful person.

    Darn! Jesse Ventura vs. Al Franken. Real life would have been more improbable than fiction!

    I just figured it out... Jesse is going to be Obama's running mate!
