Novak to run against Obama?

An iteresting proposal for the GOP candidate in Illinois popped up today on Crossfire:
BRAZILE: Now, the most unusual name being mentioned is two-time presidential candidate and talk show -- former talk show host Alan Keyes.

That would be fine, except one little detail. Keyes lives in Maryland. And, apparently, he has no connection to the land of Lincoln. Tucker, can't you all find somebody to run in Illinois?

CARLSON: You know, I don't speak for the party, Donna. I have to say, Alan Keyes is a compelling speaker. He actually speaks a lot like John Kerry. Both of them have about 90 independent clauses in each sentence.

I personally would like to see our own Robert D. Novak run. He's from the state of Illinois. He's a talk show host, though not a failed one, unlike Alan Keyes. I think he would be a great candidate.

BRAZILE: Well, that remains to be seen, whether or not Bob Novak will leave his home here in the Washington, D.C. area to go back to Illinois to run on the ticket, the land of Lincoln ticket, when most Republicans have abandoned what Abraham Lincoln preached.

An so the trial balloon is floated...
