Jesseventura The Washington Examiner reports that former Minnesota governor and pro wrestler Jesse Ventura is considering a run for president:

To hear Jesse Ventura tell it, he's either out to become president or an expatriate.

In the opening to his fourth book, due out April 1, the former wrestler and governor of Minnesota writes: "As I begin to write this book, I'm facing probably the most monumental decision of my 56 years on this planet. Will I run for president of the United States, as an independent, in 2008? Or will I stay as far away from the fray as possible, in a place with no electricity, on a remote beach in Mexico?"

(Hat tip: Andrew Sullivan)

I was going to say stranger things have happened than Ventura being elected president, but I don't think they have. No, not even that. Ventura-Bloomberg '08?
