This Would Be Good For The Hit Count
Friends and associates are encouraging Roger Ailes — Fox News founder, chairman and CEO — to jump into the political arena for real by running for President in 2012. "Ailes knows how to frame an issue better anybody and that's what we need now," says one Ailes friend who is encouraging him to run. Frank Luntz, for one, tells Playbook that Ailes could be a force if does it. "I have known Roger Ailes for 29 years," says Luntz. "No one knows how to win better than Roger."
Of course, the FFF has about as much chance of winning the nomination as Frank Luntz has of become a legitimate pollster -- or Mike Allen has of becoming a respected journalist. But I can dream.
