    I like Bill White but he isn't the perfect candidate either. He has his warts which will come out in the campaign. There is no reason to vote for White when the state is in better shape now than any other large state in the nation.

    In order to make the change there has to be a reason to change. I see no reason to change.
    The same thing that gave the Governor the right to order untested vaccines to be given to our children, after receiving huge campaign contributions from the pharmaceutical company that manufactures it. It's called an executive order.

    Luckily for us, the Legislature was able to shut down Perry's vaccine executive order, but the Legislature is not always successful. Perry isn't just out there. He is dangerous.

    That is very old news, and this practice has been cleaned up, thankfully.

    Maybe, but it was not really the scandal that some made it out to be. Frequently, a congressman would be tied up in a meeting and couldn't vote on an issue, so asked a colleague to press his vote button for him. It was a procedural violation, of course, but not a scandal by a long shot.

    The definition of a scandal these days is REALLY wide.

    that certainly is your opinion, the fact remains that TX is operating better than every other large state in the nation so be careful what you wish for.

    Your fear of Perry is unfounded and you aren't going to find the perfect candidate in White either.

    Perry has lobbyists filling all the coat pockets in his closet. He has seriously threatened to secede from the U.S. He's an idiot who has no idea what he's doing. Let me give you an example:

    Our state has no income tax, so we have to rely on other taxes and (something I just learned recently) the lottery. Perry suggested privatizing the lottery so it might run better. We also rely on toll highways a lot, Perry suggested selling tolling operations to foreign companies [Citizen outcry halts rush to sell-off TX hwys to foreign operators] which is just weird as hell.

    He's crazy and he claims to be fighting for Texas when he's actually damaging it.

    Again, your opinion. I too live in TX and have zero problem with the economy in this state and found it is better keeping what you have than changing course like we did nationally in the November 2008 elections. How is that hope and change working out for you?

    I like Bill White and live close to Houston although not in Houston. Houston right now is having budget problems just like every other city in the country and most states. Bill White did not leave Houston in the best shape economically so I will be voting for Rick Perry.
