Why do we get all the Big Heads?

Lou Dobbs considering running for Robert Menendez's Senate seat:

Dobbs isn't just considering running for political office. He's considering a run for the White House in 2012. Thing is, though, that's a ways off. And he can't just sit around chilling for two and a half years. So ... well, let's hear how a spokesman for Lou puts it. "I think Lou is realistically saying, that's a long way off, but if he did run for office there'd have to be an intermediary step, such as the Menendez seat," Dobbs's spokesman Robert L. Dilenschneider told The New York Times.

So, yes, Dobbs may run for the presidency. But as a warm up, as it were, he might run for senate against Menendez.

Admittedly, Dobbs v. Menendez would have some iconic oomph in the Dobbs Universe, with the whole white guy taking a job back from a Hispanic angle. But there is the problem of Menendez being up for reelection in 2012 rather than 2010. So I'm not sure how that's an intermediate step for running against Obama in 2012. Or maybe I just don't understand the math.
