Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) said he will visit Israel this October, the clearest sign yet he is considering running for president in 2016.
“We will be going to Israel to bring together Arabs, Christian and Jews in an educational forum,” Perry told The Washington Times in an interview.
But apparently the office Gov. Perry aspires to is one in the United States?

“By faction,” James Madison, the Constitution’s father, wrote in the justly famous Federalist No. 10, ”I understand a number of citizens, whether amounting to a majority or a minority, who are united and actuated by some common impulse of passion, or of interest, adverse to the rights of other citizens, or to the permanent interests of the community.”
Now, one must presume that Mr. Madison never imagined that the two houses of the United States Congress and the federal executive branch could conceivably combine with what today is called a “private interest group” – namely AIPAC – to be exactly the sort of faction that would threaten both “the rights of other citizens” and “the permanent interests of the community.”
