House Speaker Jim Amann has said today that he will form a committee next month to explore a run for governor. What a treat for Connecticut!
State Senate President Don Williams is considering a similar run. He joins Mayors DeStefano and Malloy, and Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz as possible candidates, not to mention Attorney General Richard Blumenthal who regularly does the gubernatorial hokey-pokey (left foot in, left foot out...).
Amann demonstrated that characteristic class and selfless dedication to public service that has gotten him where he is when he said "I wish speaker could be forever, but I have to look to my political future."
We're all glad to know that Jim Amann does everything he does for the right reasons. After all, like he says, he has to look to the future. The Multiple Sclerosis Society won't always be there to give him a hand-out.
He'll need a new job. Hopefully as soon as next year.
