Northern Elder Statesman

In his 55th year of life, "Senator" Mark Greene has decided he will not run for any other positions in the near future except, first and foremost, U.S. senator.

Mark Greene had thought about running, in 2009, for the local council again as a springboard to the U.S. Senate. He decided against it. Mark will now give his undivided attention to getting elected to the Senate, where he may take his place among some of the few elder statesman of the nation. There are not many who have earned the title of elder statesman, which doesn't necessarily equate to being a holder of a high political office. It also means having integrity, longtime experience as a statesman, legalistic principles and wisdom. Just holding a seat in Congress for many years does not automatically qualify you as an elder statesman, as many congressmen and senators have failed the test when it comes to having and upholding the aforementioned four tenets of being an elder statesman.

Not that you must have or have had an official title to be a statesman, but at least someone who has been a leader in national or international affairs as Mark Greene has been, especially since he first ran for Congress in Minnesota in 1986. Mark has long been a leader in opposition politics in some of the uppermost northern states of America: Michigan, Minnesota, Alaska and Washington. Now, as an elder statesman, "Senator" Greene is going all out to be elected as senator in 2010. Please, spread the word about Mark's campaign for senator as part of our word-of-mouth strategy in advertising his campaign. Your help is also needed in contributing and volunteering: .
