Prediction: Erskine Bowles won’t run. Suggestion: He shouldn’t.
 
Yesterday I gave Laura Leslie and Rob Christensen all the reasons Erskine would be a great governor. The problem is that he’s a terrible candidate. Even he has admitted: “I have empirical data that I was a terrible politician.”
 
He has proven it twice. That should suffice.
 
Why end a long and distinguished career in business and public service with another brutal campaign and a defeat? Why lose a campaign for governor 40 years after his father became the first Democrat in the 20th Century to lose a campaign for governor?
 
Erskine should exit quickly, and Democrats should look elsewhere. More on that later.
