Brian Preston of the PJ Tatler makes a compelling case for Governor Rick Perry (R-Texas) to run for president.
I fully agree that Perry would make a great president (full disclosure: Rick was a classmate of mine at Texas A&M), but I believe that Preston underplays the liberal & media (but I repeat myself) apoplectic charge that Perry would be a clone of George W. Bush, with the very thinly veiled (if at all) idea that Texas isn’t, well, you know . . . cultured enough to be included in the real American public square (which to them bears a remarkable resemblance to Harvard Yard).
Perry can do it (if not now, then later), but he must first overcome this important obstacle.
