My understanding is that Gov. Barbour has said that until he says he is not running, don't count him out. He has issues and will be a tough sell. Sadly, his looks and his accent will be a hurdle. It shouldn't be, but it will be. He will be painted as the stereotypical southern racist.
This was a good speech and his words were very wise indeed. I think he made some fans. This man knows how to raise money. So he may be able to make it to Super Tuesday. He also has many friends within the party.
