s it the return of Bob Kerrey?

The former Nebraska governor is coming “home” to Nebraska next week to talk with friends and others about another possible run for the U.S. Senate.

Kerrey says he will make his decision quickly, after determining whether he has the “skills” and “experience” needed to help Nebraska and the nation address some of its problems, including the nation's debt woes.

“I don't presume for a moment I would automatically win. But, I have to persuade myself, if I did win, I could do something others couldn't,” Kerrey said Friday.

3. To be honest I see this as a chance to lose by 10 instead of 35%

Win? Unlikely.
