I now think the odds are better than 50-50 that both Rick Perry and Paul Ryan run.

So, naturally, the Wall Street Journal now reports that "A Republican campaign veteran tells us that Texas Governor Rick Perry has decided to run for President, though the official word from Team Perry is still a definite maybe. Our normally reliable Republican source reports that Mr. Perry has surveyed the field and decided to get in the race later this summer, perhaps around the time of the national prayer meeting that Mr. Perry is hosting on August 6 at a Houston football stadium."

Hmm. So it looks like Perry, a successful three term Republican governor of Texas, will run for president.

Say, boss, what about Paul Ryan?
