Schweitzer's presidential prospects

Posted By on Tue, Mar 29, 2011 at 9:30 AM

Washington Post political reporter Chris Cillizza was asked the other day "just for fun" to list a few Democrats who may run for U.S. president in 2016. His answer: Mark Warner, Martin O'Malley and ... Brian Schweitzer.

He explains in the online chat:

I think Warner and O'Malley are VERY likely to be in.

[Andrew] Cuomo may depend on how his efforts to close the budget gap in the state go over the next few years.

Brian Schweitzer, outgoing Montana governor, is also an intriguing possibility and wants a role on the national stage....

Intriguing indeed.

This is the second Schweitzer in '16 reference in a month from D.C.'s political press.

Of course, there have been rumblings like this before to little effect).

Who knows, maybe the recent attention will at least boost his nonexistent campaign's Facebook page beyond its current 32 fans.
