Perry Hints At Another Run

LAS VEGAS -- Rick Perry is already the longest-serving governor in Texas history, and he's leaving the door wide open for another four-year term -- and maybe even a White House bid.

In an interview at the Republican Governors Association meeting here in Las Vegas, Perry didn't explicitly say he would seek re-election in 2014, but he's still got the fire in the belly.

"I tell people I'm healthy, I'm passionate, I still love what I'm doing. If you're not positive on both of those, you're not going to [run]. I'm positive on both of those," Perry said. But, he added, his grin slowly spreading: "It's too early to make any decisions on 2014, or 2016, or 2018, or 2020."

2016? Apparently Perry's not ready to give up on the White House. Funny for a guy who was so adamant about avoiding Washington right up until the moment he declared he would run back in August 2011.
