They Too Feel His Fire in the Belly

Bill Clinton may be kicking back in Chappaqua, but his love of a tough campaign lives on among a growing number of onetime aides. William Daley, former Secretary of Commerce, is “99%” likely, an insider says, to run for Governor of Illinois, which hasn’t elected a Democratic Governor for 29 years. Dan Glickman, former Agriculture Secretary, is considering a Senate bid in Kansas, which hasn’t picked a Democrat for the Senate since 1932. Ex-Attorney General Janet Reno is weighing a challenge to Jeb Bush for Florida Governor, and former Clinton adviser Rahm Emmanuel is eyeing a congressional seat in Illinois. Aiming for a little balance, Elizabeth Dole has talked to Bush adviser Karl Rove and Senate Campaign Committee boss Bill Frist about running for Jesse Helms’ Senate seat, should he retire.
