Schuette eyeing gubernatorial run?

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette is fond of issuing press releases, offering at least one per week, often more. While he certainly is touting his and his staffers' efforts in laying down the law of the "hand," he's also reminding state residents -- voters -- who is he.
Word among some political insiders is that he will probably run for governor, either in a couple of years if fellow Republican Gov. Rick Snyder decides to not seek re-election (Would he dare try to defeat Snyder for the nomination?), or in six years.
And why not? Schuette has a public-service resume that probably no one in Michigan can match. He's served in all three branches of state government. He was the youngest member of Congress when he was elected in 1984 at 31. He’s been a senator, director of the Department of Agriculture and a Court of Appeals judge.
He was a rising star in the GOP in the 1980s and early '90s, despite his unsuccessful bid for the U.S. Senate in 1990. A would-be governor someday, or maybe even a presidential candidate.
He finally may be able to try to meet some of those lofty expectations.
