Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty

Yesterday, Governor Tim Pawlenty spoke at our Eagan Rotary club lunch meeting. I had the honor of introducing him; he gave a great "presidential" handshake. Terry, our Rotary International exchange student from Taipei, was happy to be photographed with the governor, too.

Governor Pawlenty launched a political action committee and Web site recently as he continues to lay the groundwork for a potential presidential bid in 2012. Mr. Pawlenty, age 48 and fellow Eagan resident, was on Senator John McCain's vice-presidential short list in 2008.
