Bushies Take on Perry

The Texas Tribune notes how Bush family intimates have lined up solidly behind Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX) in her primary challenge to Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R).

In fact, even former President H.W. Bush today made "a rare overtly political announcement" in which he endorsed Hutchison.

"What's going on here? It's a question without a definitive answer and a subject that those in-the-know do not want to go anywhere near. Nearly every one of the two dozen sources contacted for this story refused to be quoted by name; several of those who went on the record saved their best material for after they went back off. But everyone with knowledge of the Bushworld-Perryworld divide had a theory."
