It seems that Chris Dodd is getting serious about a potential presidential run.
Dodd Snares Former Kerry Adviser For Presidential Bid

WASHINGTON -- Sen. Christopher Dodd Thursday snared a big Democratic name to help with his possible presidential campaign, as Jim Jordan, one of John Kerry's 2004 presidential campaign managers, signed on as a top adviser.

Jordan, 45, said he will be "helping Sen. Dodd make the decision" whether or not to seek the presidency. Jordan, who's well-known in Washington political circles for his outspoken--and intensely partisan--style, had been advising former Virginia Gov. Mark Warner before Warner decided recently not to seek the White House.

Dodd plans to decide next month on a White House bid, but by adding Jordan to his team, sends a strong signal he is seriously leaning toward a bid...

Hands up if you think this is a positive development.

Has Jordon got any POSITIVE references?

I'm just hoping Dodd doesn't hire Occhiogrosso.
