I know that George Will was promoting Owens for president some years back and then there was the marital strife that became public. A lot of people may not know that Owens is a TX native who once worked for the popular Democrat James Wright, but that was when he was very young.

Do you think Owens played a role in Salazar's election? Or was Coors just a poor candidate? Remember, the environmentalists, strong there, wanted Salazar.

Coors was a horrible candidate. We had an incredible bench of elected Republicans for the seat and we went with a guy who sounded like he'd flunked the first grade twice. I had high hopes for Owens, too, but I started getting bad feelings after what he did to Joe Rogers, his first-term Lieutenant-Governor. All the bad business that has followed just compounds those initial feelings. I'm just glad it all came out BEFORE his potential recruitment to run for President.
