November 2, 2007: Stephen Colbert will not be on the ballot for the South Carolina Democratic party's presidential primary. The host of Comedy Centrals "Colbert Report" had the application and $2,500 fee filed less than an hour before the deadline. Carol Fowler, chairwoman of the state Democratic party, said the party "really agonized over this because they really like him, they love his show and everyone thinks it's wonderful that he cares about us."
