So, what's he really running for and how can we tell?
The best clue may be Steve Ogden's decision not to seek reelection. Ogden has been chair of Senate Finance. The likelihood is that under a different lieutenant governor, he would not be chairman again. And there's not much reason to come back if he is going to be an ordinary mortal. If Dewhurst's first choice were to stick around, then Ogden would have a good reason to come back. If it isn't, he doesn't.
