When asked what might make him attempt a bid, Mr. Dobbs demurred and said, "Let me put Moo on the line."

In the forty-five-minute interview that followed, Mr. Dobbs' imaginary friend Moo said, "Speaking as one of his imaginary supporters, I believe that Lou is uniquely qualified to tackle the imaginary problems facing this country." More here.
