Time For Thompson v. Kohl Blog?

HHS Secretary Tommy Thompson tenured his resignation today and signaled an appetite for a return to elective office.

"That's entirely possible. I happen to love politics. Why would I say no? There's a Senate seat open," he said. Democratic Sen. Herb Kohl's term expires in 2006.

Starting in the late '80s, Thompson was on the vanguard of the welfare reform movement which became law under President Clinton. He also championed school choice in Milwaukee public schools. As a runner-up in Bob Dole's 1996 search for a running mate, Thompson avoided the political oblivion that befell Jack Kemp and has proven to be an effective member of the Cabinet. Would-be bloggers in Wisconsin, take note. It's time to roll out the Thompson v. Kohl blog.
