Waiting for KBH: The next generation

And so the mind games begin anew. Evan Smith receives an email from a "Republican insider well-entrenched at the Capitol but not particularly close to Rick Perry" who insists Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison will not run for Governor in 2010; she'll accept the job as Chancellor of UT instead. Her spokesman categorically denies this. All I know is that the filing deadline is a long ways off, and we'll be in for a lot more of this sort of thing until then.

Clay Robison looks at it from the other perspective:

Perry spokesman Robert Black told my colleague, R.G. Ratcliffe, that the governor's position is he's running for re-election but may reconsider if he wins some of his priorities from the Legislature.

That suggests a novel line for the governor's 2009 state-of-the-state speech: "Give me what I want, and I will go away."

Boy, there's an appealing choice. I think I'll take my chances in the campaign, thanks.
