Gov. George Pataki ‘looking at’ run for president; Peekskill ‘twice the size of Wasilla’

ABC News’ Rick Klein reports:

Sarah Palin isn’t the only former governor/former mayor who’s mulling a run for president in 2012.

On ABC’s “Top Line” today, former Gov. George Pataki, R-N.Y., told us that – as Palin has said – he’ll run for president if he determines the other Republican candidates don’t offer the right kind of leadership going forward.

“When you look back at the past two years, it’s been very disappointing, not only — not just for Republicans, but for the American people,” Pataki told us. “And I think it shows the importance of experienced leadership — leaders who have shown the ability to govern and to move forward in a nonpartisan way, leaders who have been tested and shown their ability to get through those tests.”
