Clinton Foe Klayman to Launch Senate Bid

WASHINGTON - Larry Klayman well known around Washington for his relentless pursuit of the Clintons during the 1990s and more recently for suing Vice President Cheney has decided he wants to join Hillary Rodham Clinton one of his prime targets over the years, in the U.S. Senate.

Klayman, a Republican, tells The Associated Press that he'll seek the seat now occupied by Democrat Bob Graham of Florida. Graham is running for president, though he has not ruled out returning to the Senate for a fourth term.

(snip)

"I will be the conservative antidote for Hillary Clinton," said Klayman. "I will be her worst nightmare."

1. Wow, a Republican running on an anti-Clinton platform
I'm so tired of this kind of shit, it's ridiculous. What sucks even more is that by running as the "Anti-Clinton", he'll win votes.

I doubt Graham will get the nomination, and I'm sure he won't have much of a problem holding on to his seat.

2. Klayman is a true believer paleocon...
He'll never come close to the nomination since he has ticked off too many of the Repuke party's top dogs with his antics. If Graham doesn't run again, I think Betty Castor will end up our nominee and will kick the crap out of any of the nutbars the Repukes currently have as potential nominees (Probably Johnny Bryd).

5. No kidding
remember when he tried to serve papers on Cheney in the VPs office. Or that he took on the case of one of the FBI whistle blowers per the "Bush Knew" story. Klayman has been a thorn in many peoples' sides. I don't think he will be greeted with great relish by Jebbies GOP in florida.

9. He's been after Cheney's ass
and also has a suit demanding information about why the White House staff was on Cipro starting 9/11/01. I'd like to know too.

4. He actually claims to be "non-partisan and non-profit"
I wonder if they will finally strip his tax exempt status.

6. So Larry has finally
gone off the deep end. This guy is nuts. No one likes him. Not even his employees. I'll go on the TV and tell everyone how he used to pick his nose and roll it into a ball and throw it on the floor. (I guess I'd better shut up, before Larry sends someone after me.)

Anyway, he's a total jerk.

7. OOOhhh, tough guy, that Klayman
"I will be her worst nightmare."

HRC has had a lot of nightmares bigger than Larry Klayman and emerged just fine.

8. I just saw this story
