Off the cuff remark or trial balloon? Is Texas ready for a governor who is a liberal Republican, as Armstrong is described? What is the recent track record of celebrities who become politicians? (For instance, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s approval rating is down to 41%.) What does Armstrong bring to the job besides notoriety and a hot girlfriend? On the other hand, isn’t the point of a democracy that all citizens with the ability to lead should be able–nay, have a duty–to serve and that we should not limit our leaders to members of a leadership class?
