  •  Some Dude implies not just anonymity (10+ / 0-)

    But also a lack of conventional credentials.

    If they don't have a title they can be described as, (ie former Solicitor General, Lt. Gov, etc) they're a Some Dude.

      Still, state Solicitor General to U.S. Senate is a pretty big leap.

      A small-town mayor technically wouldn't be a Some Dude, either, but in a Senate race that's a tiny credential.

        I live in a state where a school board member is the front-runner for the Democratic nomination for governor.
