Perry Compares His Campaign to Clinton's Bad Speech

Dan Balz asked Texas Gov. Rick Perry's (R) "lousy introduction to the national stage" during the 2012 presidential campagin would affect his chances if he were to run again.

Said Perry: "You mean in the way Bill Clinton's introduction was bad?," referring to Clinton's infamous nomination speech for Michael Dukakis at the 1988 Democratic National Convention.

When it was noted that Clinton's moment was just one speech, Perry added: "If one performance or a series of performances pretty much blackballs you, then it does. But I don't think that's what this country's all about."
