Swift Boat’s Pickens will stay out of 2010 politics

Politico:Texas oil tycoon T. Boone Pickens says he has no plans to finance third-party groups planning to target Democrats in the 2010 election cycle.

Instead, he’s back on Capitol Hill pitching his bipartisan energyplan, just as he did last year.

Pickens, who helped finance the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth campaign that played a key role in sinking Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry’s 2004 presidential bid, says he’ll have no part in trying to beat Democrats next year.

“No, I won’t play a role,” Pickens told POLITICO. “I’m not going to attack anybody.”
