Hpyothetical Fight of the Day: Rybak vs. Coleman

MNspeak says that MPR says that Chris Coleman and RT Rybak may both be considering a run for Governor in 2010. They’re both popular DFL mayors in the state’s two most visible cities (except for Plymouth, of course). So who would win? Here’s a little pro/con for each dude:

RT Rybak

PRO: He’s the charming, handsome mayor of Minnesota’s largest city. The camera loves him and he loves the camera. He’s also the 35W Mayor.

CON: He can’t be tamed! He’s got traffic violations and a devil may care attitude. He comes off as kind of cocky. Kind of really cocky. And not in a Han Solo sort of way.

Chris Coleman

PRO: He’s the RNC Mayor.

CON: He’s the RNC Mayor.

Discuss.

    Your pros and cons perhaps applies to a general election or even a primary election, but not to the party nomination process. The only strengths that matter to candidates seeking the nomination from their party is being able to build a base, and money, money, money. Perhaps Coleman’s got some sweet fundraising support. But that doesn’t matter. Because Rybak can out organize and generate more enthusiasm than Coleman every could. That was why Franken got the nomination for Senate, and that is why Rybak will get the nomination for Governor.
