"We’re using our full set of campaign tools, but they won’t go active until we get a little downtime while we’re in D.C.," a blogger named “Stranded Wind” wrote on the liberal website Daily Kos. Olbermann "used to live in Connecticut and could easily return and establish residency."

Olbermann departed "Countdown" Friday. Duringthe weekend, he said he would return to his Baseball Nerd blog on MLB.com but didn’t reveal any other plans.
