Kay Bailey Hutchison To Leave Senate, Become Rick Perry of the Private Sector
"I have known since 2006 that I wouldn't seek another term," she said in a telephone interview from her office in Dallas. "I wanted to announce it on my own terms and in my own way." [...]
Hutchison said she didn't know what she would do after leaving the Senate, but retirement isn't likely. She said she looked forward to working in some capacity in the private sector.
A telephone interview. She did it her way.
So most won't notice or care about this. Some Nate Silver robot will go tweak things, and some dude will update her Wikipedia page.
