Politico, please define "rampant speculation"

Blog ››› ››› ERIC BOEHLERT

With its signature breathless/naive style, Politico plays the role of Lou Dobbs booster [emphasis added]:

Former CNN host Lou Dobbs fueled already rampant speculation about his political future Monday, sending the clearest signals yet that he's mulling a bid for president — and leaving third-party political operatives salivating over the possibility of a celebrity recruit for the 2012 campaign.

Honestly, is there anyone besides Lou Dobbs and Politico reporters who can detect any kind of "rampant speculation" about his political future? (I'd settle for any speculation.) Seems like it's been mostly crickets on that front since Dobbs left CNN.

UPDATED: I think humorist Andy Borowitz gets it about right:

Former CNN host Lou Dobbs said today that he was seriously considering running for president after being urged to do so by an imaginary friend.
