    If he was added as a VP candidate for any of the Dems, would he bring enough to help win the state?

    I mean, it's not like Florida mattered much last election. He has an overall varied resume with some military and national politics included. He brings and ties the old guard with the younger look the main candidates.

    The fact that he was running for President only means that he now has some national face-time.

    In reality, I don't know much about him, but hopes he lives well off the pension plan he voted for himself and all the cash he raised during his tenure and presidential campaign. Must be a hard life, i mean, if he really retires from public life.

    Graham is probably a little too dull to ever get the VP spot. He might help with Florida, but the Gore campaign didn't pick him for VP because they thought he was too boring.

    As for living off the money he raised for his campaign...He can't. That's rediciliously insane to say. Campaign money cannot become personal money. Plus Graham didn't have much money, it's a large part of why he isn't running for President anymore.
