Probably not the reaction he's looking for

Former Va. Gov. Jim Gilmore apparently is running for president. Still. Hell, he's in seventh place among Republicans. That's because everbody besides him and six other guys have dropped out, of course, but still, just a couple days ago he was in 12th place. Shooting up like a rocket.

His only problem, of course, is no one has heard of him. Including Virginians, who think his name sounds vaguely familiar. He was an adequate but forgettable governor. I'll bet he meets people and gets this:

Him: Hi, I'm Jim Gilmore and I'm running for president.
Them: Gilmore? I thought you died in The Executioner's Song.
Can't possibly bode well for the future of his bid for the presidency.
