POLITICS: Rick Perry, VP Material?

Now, I'm not from Texas, so maybe I'm missing something here. Matt Lewis thinks Texas' Governor would be a fine addition to a national ticket:

Perry's national visibility will also likely increase, as he is rumored to be in line to become Chairman of the Republican Governor's Association (RGA) -- a position that often serves as a stepping-stone toward a presidential bid.

Sources tell me the governor has close relationships with both Mayor Rudy Giuliani and former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee. One can easily imagine that the endorsement of a conservative Texas governor might help Giuliani in his bid to seal the nomination.

Should Giuliani's wooing work, a Perry VP nomination is certainly imaginable.

From what I know of Gov. Perry, he's a solid enough Republican but nobody's idea of a star in the makings, and not really all that beloved by serious people in the Texas GOP - kind of a Texan George Pataki, albeit a better Republican than Pataki because he is planted in better soil.
