Lou Dobbs for President

Lou Dobbs (born September 24, 1945) is the anchor and managing editor of CNN's hour-long weeknight program Lou Dobbs Tonight, an editorial columnist, and host of a syndicated radio show. Lou Dobbs Tonight attracts CNN's largest audience, of about 800,000. CNN pays him $6 million a year, and he also lectures widely.[1]
Dobbs resides on a 300-acre "isolated horse farm" in Sussex County, New Jersey.[2] He is married to his second wife, the former Debi Segura, a one-time CNN sports anchor, with whom he has two daughters, Hillary and Heather.[3] He also has two sons, Chase and Jason, from his first marriage.
Originally a classically
conservative economist, Dobbs' views have changed over time, and he is now a strongly populist critic of the "excesses of capitalism," which he identifies as globalization, offshore outsourcing, runaway film production (the outsourcing of Hollywood jobs)[4] [5], illegal immigration, free trade deals, corporate/big business influence in government and the Bush administration's tax cuts. He advocates protectionism, warning that outsourcing, the U.S. trade and budget deficits threaten the American middle class. For more, click here.

Here is an excerpt (a link below) that explains it all:

"So, here comes thee reason why should you consider voting for Lou Dobbs should he run: Lou will not betray us like many before him did and many, most likely, will. For me, that's the most important qualification for the next president of the U.S."

from "Why Should You Consider Voting For Lou If He Runs?", by Mark Andrew Dwyer
