Quotes

...policy matter in an area where Congress has proven unwilling to move," said Southern Methodist University political scientist Cal Jillson. "the downside is that the farther you go, the harder the pushback is likely to be, and that's particularly risky for candidates running in conservative districts or states.”"
"unless his lawyers can get the indictment quashed, get the indictment thrown out by a judge before the trial begins, the trial will kill him as a candidate for the republican nomination in 2016" Jillson said
If Perry goes to trial, voters will see a parade of Perry operatives discuss the deal-making surrounding the veto. "it will show how ugly it is to see the political sausage made" Jillson said
"Trying to follow each other, but not be in a close ballroom dancing post," Jillson says. "they're sometimes well away from each other, but in a choreographed dance to try to capture the attention of the republican primary electorate."
