Keating Says No

Today Frank Keating the former 2 term Republican Governor of Oklahoma said he will not seek the Republican nomination for President of the United States in 2008.

Too bad. Many of our recent Presidents, both Republicans and Democrats have formerly been Governors of states. Presidents Bush, Clinton, Reagan and Carter all come to mind. Frank has the credentials. He is a conservative and could have led the Republican Party back toward the Reagan-Republican side of things. As a relative unknown he may have been just the type of candidate that is capable of capturing the top spot.

He probably doesn't want to take the pay cut just to have every piece of dirt dug up on him, his motives questioned, and his family maligned. Can't say as I blame him, though I think he'd be a great prez.
