    If you're a racist like him, the highest office you can hope for is governor.

    Haley Barbour: Mississippi Gov Won’t Seek White House | Strange Bedfellows — Politics News - seattlepi.com
    <excerpt>

    He has, however, offended some sensibilities and appeared to defend Mississippi&#8217;s racist past. Barbour has regularly proclaimed &#8220;Confederate Heritage Month&#8221; in the Magnolia State. He keeps on the wall a Confederate flag signed by Jefferson Davis.

    Earlier this year, Barbour appeared briefly to defend the White Citizens Council, a major vehicle for maintaining segregation in the 1960&#8242;s. He credited the Citizens Council with keeping Ku Klux Klan violence out of Yazoo City.

    I don't think Haley Barbour has run anywhere since he was a kid.

    But I'm glad he won't be waddling for president.

    I'm not running for President either. News at 11.

    Who cares if someone isn't running? Seriously?

    I suspect he decided it was more important for him to continue his valuable efforts,

    presiding over the poorest, fattest, least educated, most conservative state in America.

    Somebody needs to come up with a person better than Mitt Romney as well. I can't say I like what he did while he was governor of MA.
