Jesse Ventura scheduled for Larry King

It looks like the former Minnesota will be talking about his potential presidential aspirations on Larry King Live tonight.

From the program teaser:

Jesse Ventura…for president!!?? The former wrestler-governor is back and talking politics. Where has he been - and is he really making a run for presidency?

The International Herald Tribune has another possible angle to the story:

In an interview Monday with The Associated Press, former Reform Party Gov. Jesse Ventura said there’s nothing that could get him back into politics. But then he kept talking:

“I’ve learned after 56 years you never say never. I have no intention at this point in time, but who knows, that could change.” He said that he’s watching the Senate race with interest, and that “I’m not very pleased with either candidate.”

They would be Republican Sen. Norm Coleman, who suffered his only electoral defeat when Ventura beat him for the governorship in 1998, and Al Franken, the former “Saturday Night Live” comedian running as a Democrat.

“I would think we certainly could do a whole lot better in the state of Minnesota,” Ventura said.

    As stated elsewhere, since this is April Fool’s Day I wouldn’t put too much stock in this.

    S.G. we already talked it up on this thread…”Constitution Party on Hawaii Ballot”

  3. Dominik Says:

    If the Libertarian Party was smart they would nominate Ventura for 2008. Jesse said he would run if he could get ballot access.
