Perot ‘Wrong Man At Right Time,’ Book Says

Ross Perot was the “wrong man at the right time” in 1992, whose quest to become president was doomed by his ego and “utter inability to think strategically,” his former campaign manager says in a new book.

“The country, happily, is a better place for that,” Republican strategist Ed Rollins, who had a brief and stormy stint as manager of Perot’s 1992 campaign, writes in the book, “Bare Knuckles and Back Rooms.”

Excerpts will be published Monday in Time magazine.
