Mark Warner for Prez 

I've heard from a source VERY close to former VA Governor Mark Warner, that he will not be running for President. I still think he will change his mind, but it's most likely a personal decision (i.e. Mrs. Warner/kids don't want to go through with running) than a political one. Stay tuned.

This news would be a help to Al Gore.

Update 10/12/06: It's official. Concerns about not having enough time to be with wife, young kids:
Democrat Mark R. Warner, the former governor of Virginia, has decided not to run for president in 2008, Democratic officials said Thursday.

Warner scheduled a late morning news conference in Richmond to make the announcement.

"This wasn't the right time in his life. He would have to put everything else on the backburner in order to run for president and do it right, and he wants a real life," said Jim Margolis, a Warner adviser.
