Any Governor who jogs armed and kills the occasional coyote to save his dog has got to be considered. Unfortunately, Perry opened his mouth and ended that consideration, at least for me. I want a fighter, a truth teller, a stand up guy. Perry may be that be he comes across as lame, ill-informed and unsure about big issues. He also has a track record of NOT being against big government consistently (HPV vaccinations anyone?).
The guy I see who is articulate, conservative and "presentable" is, in fact, Ted Cruz.
