DuB for guvna? Why not, what a long history he has a standing up for Georgians, of legislation he's authored, calling out GDOT for wasteful spending, championing environmental issues, children's healthcare, mass transit, getting back the billions Sonny Do cut from public schools, forcing the hand of Sonny or Glenn the Stache or the lovely Earl Ehrhart when they say or do something stupid, or getting all GA Dem's to stand united on the big important votes.

Oh I'm sorry, there's a greater chance of the Hawks winning the title than any of those things happening...
