Sen. Sununu labeled a future star

Our candidate Senator John E. Sununu was mentioned in Time Magazine as an up and coming star for the Republican Party in the Senate.

We here believe Senator Sununu is already a star and is ready to take on a bid for the White House in 2008.

Sen. John E. Sununu says he appreciates being recognized by Time magazine as a future star of the United States Senate.

Time’s current issue lists the 10 best senators and “five who are falling short.” It also lists five “up-and-comers,” with the New Hampshire Republican among them.

Time says it “spoke to dozens of academics, political scientists and current and former senators” to make the picks.

Regarding Sununu, Time says:

“Only 41 years old, the New Hampshire Republican is the youngest member of the Senate, but that hasn’t limited his reach. Sununu played a major role this year on lobbying-reform legislation, and he got the Bush Administration to make some crucial changes in the Patriot Act before he voted to reauthorize it.

“The son of former White House Chief of Staff John H. Sununu, he has become a well-respected fiscal conservative, last fall calling for cuts in nearly every part of the budget to offset spending for Hurricane Katrina.”

Sununu said yesterday, “I don’t think anyone can predict your political future, least of all Time magazine. But I do appreciate the fact that they recognized some of the pieces of legislation I’ve worked on in the past couple of years.”

Sununu said the Senate “is a small place and you get to know your colleagues well.” He said he considers Graham “a good friend,” and added, “It’s been hard not to notice Barack Obama’s appearance in the Senate. He’s worked hard and is getting the hang of it.”
