H.Ross Perot, Dies at 89

Billionaire and former Presidential Candidate H. Ross Perot has died at 89.   He succumbed after a five month battle with Leukemia.

The Texas Billionaire ran for US President back in 1992 and his candidacy garnered 19% of the popular vote; the largest third-party share in US history.

That was the year the George H.W. Bush lost to Bill Clinton.  Republicans never forgave Perot for running, and blamed his 19% vote for Bush's loss.

      Yes, and I think that was fair enough. I liked old Ross, and I will remember him fondly.
