Rick Perry to decide in 2 or 3 weeks

Rick Perry is feeling a "call".
(Politico) — In one of the hardest indications yet that he’s a likely candidate, Rick Perry gave an interview to the politically important Des Moines Register last week, in which he said he is beginning to feel a “call” to run for president:
“I’m not ready to tell you that I’m ready to announce that I’m in,” Gov. Rick Perry told The Des Moines Register. “But I’m getting more and more comfortable every day that this is what I’ve been called to do. This is what America needs.”
Another big-name potential Republican presidential candidate who is still on the sidelines, Sarah Palin, told Fox News in May that she has “that fire in the belly” to run. It remains a question whether Perry does.
“I’ll be real honest with you, I don’t wake up in the morning — never did and still don’t today — and say, ‘Gee, I want to be president of the United States,’” Perry, 51, said by phone last week.
But his wife, Anita, and hundreds of people nationwide say they want him to run, he said. He said he would likely decide in two or three weeks. More here.
