Farrell: “I’ll Run in 2006;” But for What?

Westport First Selectwoman Diane G. Farrell, who came close to knocking Rep. Christopher Shays out of his 4th District seat, is back on the campaign trail; but exactly which trail remains a mystery, the Connecticut Post reported today.

“I definitely intend to run in ‘06,” Farrell said in a recent interview, according to the Washington-datelined report.

What the Democrat won’t say is for which office. She is considering either a rematch against Republican Shays or running for statewide office. She will decide in the next few months, the newspaper said.

“I am conferring with good friends and family,” she told the Post.

Farrell is also doing the little things necessary for anyone planning to run for office showing up at community events, attending political functions and calling on Capitol Hill power brokers, the newspaper said.

What about a Democratic Senate Primary Challenge to Lieberman? Mr. Lieberman has a lot to account for. She’ll get my vote.

Good Idea. I’ll second that and so would my husband.

Who cares? Can’t Diane do the job she has instead of spending her last months on the job fishing for her next title? Could it all be any more tiresome?

Perhaps Mr. Lieberman will switch parties already and make it that much easier for Ms. Farrell!

Joe Lieberman has a lot to account for?

Okay, let’s replace him with a Democrat who is beating the drum for an intrusive drinking ordinance that could have been written by John Ashcroft.

Who’s the real Democrat?

Lieberman needs to be replaced for a number of reasons. For the latest, here’s a quote from Democratic strategist Paul Begala, with regard to Lieberman: “Look, any Democrat who rescues Mr. Bush’s assault on Social Security ought to be defeated in a primary and allowed to begin their own retirement early.” Maybe Diane’s the one.

She’s a small-town selectman with delusions of grandeur!

Diane wants to run for something, seemingly anything. She wants the title but not the responsibility, it seems.

But I’ll give her this - she’s smart enough to not face the Westport voters this fall, given the reval scandal, etc. There’s a reason she didn’t win her hometown last November, when Dodd, Kerry, and Mioli did.
