Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX) and Governor Rick Perry (R-TX) are trying to put some distance between themselves and Sen Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY). The two Texans are expected to square off for the Republican nomination for Texas Governor next year.
Governor Perry's people circulated a video showing Sen Hutchison speaking kindly of Senator Clinton. Them's fightin' words for Texas Republicans. So Sen Hutchison's opposition research found a skeleton in Gov Perry's closet -- a letter from Perry calling Sen Clinton's health care reforms "commentable."
All these pleasantries about Sen Clinton are sure stirring a tempest in a Texas teapot. (AP via Yahoo! News)
