Eying the Governor's Mansion

by: Matt Glazer

Fri Sep 07, 2007 at 04:29 PM CDT

It appears that Republican Kay Bailey Hutchison is not the only one looking at taking down Governor good hair. 

After winning with 39% of the vote last November, Rick Perry continues to fail Texas and Education Secretary Margaret Spelling will have to look for a new job after January 20th, 2009 when she is done with President Bush and company.

According to Washington Whispers at the US News and World Report site, Eduwonk has heard rumor after rumor about Spelling exploring a race for Governor. Clearly Republicans are dissatisfied with Perry too.

We missed our opportunity (0.00 / 0)
There will never be another Governor as unpopular as Perry.

Seems to me (0.00 / 0)
that Margaret Spellings is caught up in that George W. Bush bubble world.

The "No Child Left Behind" debacle will be with Mrs. Spellings for the rest of her life. Maybe she's ok with it.

However, I don't know that she can recover that quickly from NCLB or from her close connection with W.  Didn't Karen Hughes "explore" the possibility of running for governor, too, a couple of years ago?  Who's next? Harriet Miers?

RE: Who else for Dems besides Kinky? (0.00 / 0)
We have to have a viable alternative.  Who?  Sharp, Bell, Chet Edwards, Kinky?

Houston Mayor Bill White. (5.00 / 2)
He's term limited out of Houston in 2009. His last election is this fall.
