Perot staying out

This is from last week, but it's worth a mention:

A governor's race with two independent candidates isn't enough to entice Dallas billionaire Ross Perot to get involved in a campaign again.

The man who twice ran for president as a third-party candidate tells The Dallas Morning News he's staying out of politics and sticking with issues.

Perot's Reform Party campaign drew enough votes in 1992 to help Bill Clinton defeat President George H.W. Bush. Perot ran again for president in 1996.

He has been known in the past to make endorsements.

Perot was once all about independent and third-party candidates, even bankrolling the Reform Party's short-lived tenure. Now he apparently isn't getting behind any indies in his home state. He's an odd guy.

If there was a independent candidate who had a legit shot at being president, it was Perot. And then he spectacularly self-destructed.
