Why Not Rick Perry?

Somebody in the Republican party, and preferably in the Trump Cabinet, should stand up and say Enough! Rick Perry is a possibility. The former Texas governor is among the few on Trump’s Cabinet who haven’t embarrassed themselves with humiliating scandal. He’s got street cred with at least the religious right elements of Trump’s base. Not saying I would support him for president but why not make the Republican nomination a race?

Republicans who give a damn about preserving their party ought to be thinking about such things.

And of course it wouldn’t hurt Democrats to see a civil war within Trump’s base.
