Keating's Wise White House Decision

Despite some not-so-secret whispers around the Sooner state, former Oklahoma Governor Frank Keating has let it be known that he won't be seeking the White House in 2008.

Keating's decision not to seek the Republican nomination for president is a smart move. In national terms, his name recognition and fund-raising ability pales in comparison to such leading lights as John McCain and Rudy Giuliani. To put it more bluntly, Keating's chances of capturing the Republican nomination were slim to none, no matter how much support he has in Oklahoma.
