A Conversation with Rick Perry

A Newsweek/Texas Tribune exclusive: The Governor of Texas talks about the Tea Party, his beef with the federal government, health care reform, Mexico, the state budget, redistricting, whether he's an insider or an outsider, what he thinks about the presidency of George W. Bush, and — while we're on the topic — whether he plans to run for the White House himself ... and his answer could not be more definitive.
