Best thing about it. He will dilute the GOP gene pool.

The danger from Rick Perry is not that he will be the Republican nominee. He can't stand up to the scrutiny a presidential nominee gets.

The danger from Rick Perry will come if Mitt Romney can stand to hold his nose and put Perry on the ticket as V.P. If Romney is desperate enough to sell out his principles, Perry might could help him.

Perry can deliver the lunatic fringe that would come out to vote for Palin or Bachmann or Santorum, or for Perry.

But, unlike Palin or Bachmann or Santorum, Perry might can be taught by the smart Republicans to shut up when he is out of his league.

He is a canny politician. He is pretty and a good cheerleader (after all that practice as an Aggie yell leader). He also has good hair. If that is enough for Republicans, he might help the ticket.
