Sen. Allen setting up a beachhead for the 2008 SC Presidential Primary?

The Hotline's "Last Call" reported yesterday:

Miller Time For Sanford SC Gov. Mark Sanford is announcing today that Jason Miller, currently in the role of campaign manager for Sen. George Allen's '06 re-elect, is coming on board the re-election campaign. Title TBD. Miller, always the campaign junkie, is leaving Allen amicably. He's simply looking for something to do more competitively for the '06 cycle. Miller: "Sanford is expected to have a more competitive and more spirited re-election campaign than Sen. Allen will." Sources tell us that since Mark Warner announced he would not challenge Allen in '06, Miller's received several offers to work a more competitive race in '06. He'll be moving to Columbia, SC at the beginning of Dec. We'll let all you Allen conspiracy theorists decide whether having a former staffer learning the ropes in SC is beneficial to Allen's presidential aspirations. Also, Miller, a.k.a. "Spike" is leaving on "excellent terms." For those that don't know, Allen's a nickname guy and "Spike" has been Miller's nickname since the start because "he didn't look like a Jason."
A source of mine very close to this story, responding to the conspiracy theorist quote, told me:
regarding the conspiracy theory, it's a lot more plausible than the single-bullet theory! :)
I have to applaud my source for using that analogy given the date today.

Yup, that's a badge of honor isn't it? Especially given that they ranked Marky Mark as one of the best.
