Another brother as Gov'ner?
They like us, they really like us! Seems that the job for governor (of Arkansas) is getting more popular all the time. Now it looks like Bill Halter would like the job also. He served under Bill Clinton in the OMB on Social Security. I think his entrance will make a pretty interesting race. For years the Good Ol' Boy system in Arkansas has restricted the people who could run for statewide office to those who had put their time in (like Beebe). However, now it looks like with enough money, smarts and experience, you can play on a level playing field with the Good Ol' Boy network. One interesting thing about his website: it says in his bio that he is a Marshall Scholar and a Rhodes Scholar. That is pretty neat. Since it can't be true. Oh well.
