Here's a great story on how a governor should manage things budget-wise, as opposed to, I don't know, the governator. Full disclosure-I have a preference for all things Minnesotan (save for that unfortunate Franken fellow), but I really dig this guy Pawlenty. He's not Obama when it comes to style and flash, but still he's an appealing guy, son of a milk truck driver, first in his family to go to college, and coiner of the term 'Sam's Club Republican.' Were he to make a national run in a few years, I'm not sure what the media would go after him over (though we can be confident it'll be SOMETHING). However, if you believe as many do that the Republican comeback will be in the governor's mansions, this man's lead is a good one to follow.
