Joe Schwarz's Future Plans

The AP has an article out on Joe Schwarz's political future, based on a similar Battle Creek Enquirer article. Both are worth reading. I'm afraid I don't have the time to summarize them, except to note that Congressman Schwarz has a number of issues he plans to work on when Congressman-elect Walberg takes over, including stem cell research and universal healthcare.

But here's a part I do want to share, from the end of the AP article:

Other plans include teaching public policy at the University of Michigan next fall and helping U.S. Sen. John McCain in his expected bid for the presidency in 2008.

Despite support from the likes of President George W. Bush and the National Rifle Association, Schwarz lost the August primary after Walberg said he was too liberal for the district and used Schwarz's vote in favor of expanding embryonic stem cell research against him. Schwarz said he would be "foolish" to rule out running again to reclaim his House seat but said he has come to terms with the loss.

"You move on," he said. "Life is one reality after another."

... and, from the Enquirer article:
"I would be foolish to rule it out, but I certainly haven't ruled it in either," Schwarz said of a 2008 bid in the 7th Congressional District. "I've given myself at least six months to sit back and look at that situation."
We'll see what happens...
