Rick Perry's announcement Monday in San Antonio may settle whether he'll run for a fourth term as governor – or open the door to a presidential bid in 2016. But as his 'oops' moment in 2012 signals, he's not predictable.
WWRPD? What will Rick Perry do? That’s a big question in US politics Monday as the current Texas governor and former GOP presidential candidate has invited supporters and friends to join him in San Antonio for an announcement of “exciting future plans."
The conventional wisdom is that this exciting future does not include Mr. Perry running in 2014 for a fourth full term as Texas governor.
“The smart money is on him passing on another bid with an eye on something bigger,” writes Washington Post political reporter Chris Cillizza on “The Fix” blog Monday.
