Grover Norquist, the anti-tax lobbyist who once said he'd like to get government down "to the size where I can drag it into the bathroom and drown it in the bathtub," wasn't pleased when Alabama Gov. Bob Riley proposed a $1.2 billion tax plan in 2003. Norquist, who has huge clout among Washington Republicans, told The New Yorker, "Bob Riley will never be president."

So does Riley have any interest in a White House run one day? Riley spokesman Jeff Emerson: "If he does, Grover Norquist wouldn't know about it."
