Ten random things: March 27

Ten United States governors:

  1. Robert A. Taft II (Ohio)
  2. W. Mitt Romney (Mass.)
  3. James E. Doyle (Wis.)
  4. M. Jodi Rell (Conn.)
  5. Arnold A. Schwarzenegger (Calif.)
  6. Haley R. Barbour (Miss.)
  7. Brad Henry (Okla.)
  8. G. Ervin "Sonny" Perdue III (Ga.)
  9. Theodore R. Kulongoski (Ore.)
  10. Christine Gregoire (Wash.)

I've met a fair number of politicians in my day, but I've only ever met two US governors, and neither one was serving as governor when I met him. The first was Wendell Ford, who served as Governor of Kentucky from 1971 to 1974 but who at the time I met him was a US Senator; the second, Parris Glendening, who I met a few weeks before he was sworn in as Governor of Maryland.
