HE WRESTLED WITH THIS DECISION

Minnesota governor Jesse "The Body" Ventura is leaving the body politic — the ex-pro wrestler says he won't seek a second term. "I'm like Che Guevara: My job is to lead the revolution and then hand it off to someone else," he told Minnesota Public Radio. "I feel it's time to go back to the private sector." He denied that a dip in popularity had affected his choice. "I feel if I had run again, I would have won," Ventura said. "I'm not afraid to run."
