ABSTRACT
The article reports that the 2008 presidential season has opened with the "candidacy" of former Alaska governor Mike Gravel. Gravel is among a growing number of has-been politicians using a run for president as a platform for their own issues. Former Senator Carol Moseley Braun ran in 2004 after leaving office over ethical concerns, while former Secretary of State Colin Powell and former senator Newt Gingrich both used rumored presidential runs to push their books up the bestseller lists.
