The Fox News pundit says he’s eyeing a New Jersey race, even with his professional exploits and years of excessive personal baggage. A look at why the dream will remain a fantasy.

Geraldo Rivera wants to be a United States senator.
Imagine the 30-second ads against him: here he is getting his nose broken by a neo-Nazi in a brawl on his daytime talk show.
Here he is melodramatically opening Al Capone’s vault and finding … a few old bottles.
And did I mention that his memoir, filled with tales of the women he has bedded, is called Exposing Myself?
I like Geraldo, but this is delusional. And something of a stunt. He’ll milk it for a bit and then decide he wants to spend more time with his microphone.
