Rick Perry "tempted" to run

On Greta Van Susteren's show last night, TX Gov. Rick Perry sounded like a man who wouldn't mind being drafted for a presidential run.

VAN SUSTEREN: With all your level of disappointment, for lack of a better word, with the federal government taking care of these issues, you say you don't want to run for president.

PERRY: Right.

VAN SUSTEREN: Why not? Are you tempted?

PERRY: At the end of the day, for the next week, I've got a legislative session to focus on. My hope is that person will come forward that can win the presidency that we can all get behind.

VAN SUSTEREN: Are you tempted?

PERRY: Oh, I can't say I'm not tempted, but the fact is: this is something I don't want to do.
