You have all probably read about the boomlet (or is it boomlette?) about Cong. Marsha Blackburn’s name being bandied about for president. Don’t get us wrong: The crew at RTP just LOVES Marsha, but her running for president is not serious.
But even less serious is the mention of Bill “Mr. Rogers” Haslam as a credible presidential candidate. “But”, you say, “Bill has a bunch of personal wealth he could spend on a race. Wouldn’t that make him credible?” All that money really worked for “President” Romney, didn’t it?
Also the governor is not exactly known for his — ahem — decisiveness. But ya gotta give Mr. Rogers credit: He kept the UAW out of Chattanooga, and for that RTP says “Thank you.”
