Kaine Sees Long Senate Career

Sen.-elect Tim Kaine (D-VA) told the Richmond Times-Dispatch he hopes to remain in the U.S. Senate a long time.

Said Kain: "I want to do more. I decided when I ran: Don't do this unless you think this is likely to be the last job you have in your life. I want to do it, and I want to do it for a long while. I'm kind of using (former Sen.) John Warner as my model as somebody who dug in, did it for a long time, accomplished a lot of good, and the fact that he was there for a while enabled him to attain positions that helped him do good things for the country and the commonwealth."

When asked if he might run for president, he said, "Let's see, if I serve for 30 years, I'll be 86... probably not, no."
