Ken Rudin on Andy Card

In addition to digging up some vintage Andy Card buttons for today's Political Junkie, NPR's political editor has some thoughts on Card's future. Here's the good stuff:

And as for Card, there are rumors that he will jump into the race for governor in Massachusetts, where incumbent Republican Mitt Romney is leaving after one term, and where Romney's lieutenant governor, Kerry Healey, is not doing so well. My guess is that it doesn't happen; perhaps one reason the rumor has surfaced is that Card has previously talked of the governorship, and in fact ran once before, in 1982, finishing third in the GOP primary. (There's another scenario that has Card heading back to the Bay State to help with Romney's anticipated presidential candidacy.)

The prospect of Card playing a key role in Romney's '08 run is especially intriguing.
