Another Possible Horse in the Race

On-line critic Ed Morrissey has a post up on the possibility that former Gov George Pataki of New York might throw his hat in the ring for 2012.  For those who can remember, he was a Republican, albeit a more centrist Republican (remember, he was elected three times in New York).

Frankly, Cap't Ed doesn't give Gov Pataki very good odds, noting:
In both tone and policy, Pataki makes Pawlenty look like a grass-roots Tea Party leader.
I say the more the merrier.  And, he formed a nonprofit organization, Revere America, to help fight what has come to be known as Obama Care (United States Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act).

Real down side?  He is another Yale Grad.  How many would that make?  Wikipedia says seven Presidents and Vice Presidents and that doesn't count the also rans.&nsp; Remember, John F Kerry was a Yale man.

Chris Christie or Paul Ryan.....otherwise...the Reps don't have a prayer in you-know-where. Wish the Reps would wake up and smell the stuff that the Obama crowd is smoking......
