Meet Tim Pawlenty

David Gregory has an hour-long interview with Tim Pawlenty as part of his Meet The Press Across America series.  Highlights are:

1.  His repeated statement that he supports K-12 education, followed by his explanation that the reason Minnesota will have a $3 billion deficit in its next 2-year budget cycle is because the Democrats in the legislature would not make his $1.9 billion in cuts to education permanent.

2.  His statement that he would propose converting Medicaid into a block grant to states, capping the Federal government's obligation.  But he would increase funding for patrolling the border.
