The only thing less valuable than a statewide poll more than two years before an election–which is itself worth about as much as a keg cup two days before a party–is an online betting line for a Senate election two years out. (Remember, just a couple weeks ago, France, which cannot even agree on a practice schedule, was listed at 20/1 to win the World Cup.)

All those disclaimers aside, it can be noted that Lou Dobbs is currently listed as an odds on favorite by SBR Forum to unseat New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez in 2012. Back in November, a spokesman for Dobbs, who recently took a big buyout from his job at CNN, said the former cable news anchor was considering a run.
