"Politics and Other Mistakes" piece on Maine's wrestlers and other professional athletes who, like Minnesota's Jesse "The Body" Ventura, could decide to use their popularity to win elected offices.

Also on the list are race car driver Ricky Craven, shortstop Mike Bordick, skier Julie Parisien, runner Joan Benoit Samuelson, and basketball player Cindy Blodgett.
