Pawlenty’s Atlantic video interview covers both his and GOP’s future


Gov. Tim Pawlentytalks about Al Franken, the national Republican Party’s woes, health care solutions, Obama’s performance and whether he’ll run for president in a new video interview (below) now online at The Atlantic website.

Shortly after the 7-minute mark, Pawlenty tells Bob Cohn: “I don’t know what my future holds, I’ll try to continue to speak both in Minnesota and nationally about how to improve the Republican Party and see if there’s some support for what I’d like to propose, and see where that leads. I don’t know what i’m going to be doing three years from now.”
