Alvin Greene 'Seriously Considering' 2012 Presidential Run

Posted: Updated:

Alvin Greene, the quirky former South Carolina Senate candidate, added additional hype to his potential bid for president earlier this week when he upped the likelihood of a run from "I'll have to see," to "I'm seriously considering."

Not everyone is excited about the idea of this scenario.

"I am at a loss for words to describe this new development," wrote S.C. Senate Democratic Caucus director Phil Bailey according to the Columbia Free Times.

But it's possible that Bailey and other Democrats will be able to save their words, because Greene is hinting that he might not mount a campaign affiliated with their party.

"I don't know which party I'll run in as a candidate," he told the Times. "I'm thinking about that."

It's possible that Greene is hoping to shed the specter of his failed run for Senate, an undertaking that eventually became branded by the candidate's unpredictable and awkward interactions with the media -- as well as his legal troubles.
