No Could Texas' Perry be mulling move to California?

Could Texas Gov. Rick Perry be California dreamin'?

The Republican has made persuading top employers around the country to move to Texas a centerpiece of his administration, even leading a series of job-poaching missions in Democratically controlled states. And California has been a prime target, with Perry bashing what he calls the Golden State's high-tax, over-regulated ways.

But a New York Times Magazine story released Tuesday says Perry's so enamored with California that he could move there when his term ends.

Can't we get Texas to secede already? Then when Perry comes here, we can just deport him.

At least it would mean a decisive end to his political career. I don't see any way he could get anywhere near statewide office in California with his record. Congress maybe depending on where he settles, but I doubt an ex-governor with presidential aspirations would be satisfied with that.
