As a potential presidential campaign announcement by Texas Gov. Rick Perry comes ever closer (he’s expected to decide in the next few weeks), strategists and supporters seem ever more confident his decision will be a “yes.”
Former George W. Bush adviser Karl Rove, for example, recently said he thinks Perry will run — and, as Rove has had a hand in Perry’s political career, his opinion ought to count for something. (In 1989, Rove helped to persuade Perry to join the Republican Party and to run for agriculture commissioner, and he was “heavily invested” in Perry’s election as lieutenant governor in 1998. But then, Rove also endorsed Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison against Perry in Perry’s most recent run for governor, so who knows what Rove knows?)
