The definite possibility of a firm maybe

Star-Telegram: "Hutchison definitely considering 2010 governor's race". Um, so like what else is new?

U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison backed away from announcing that she is going to run for governor on Tuesday, but said that she hopes to take steps following the November election that will allow her to do so in 2010.

Hutchison said during a press conference at the Trinity River Vision Authority offices that she definitely is considering it but that she doesn't want to encroach on the candidates running during this election cycle.

"Of course, I'm considering it, I think everyone knows that," Hutchison said. "I would love to have the opportunity to run for and serve as governor of Texas."

"I am absolutely beginning to see what would be necessary to take those steps ... When this election is over, then I will begin to take the steps that I hope will lead to my ability to run for governor."

I'd just like to take a moment to say that I too am considering a run for Governor, and that I'd love to have the opportunity to run for and serve as Governor of Texas. Hey, I sensed an opening. May as well grab it while I can.

For crying out loud. The news-to-newsworthiness ratio in this continuing non-story is just off the charts. She might run. She's thinking about it. She'll tell us later what her decision is. We get it. Let's move on, okay?
