He'd have to hurry back home, too

Like many major state news agencies, last week I made the mistake of speaking of NBA legend Charles Barkley as a potential 2010 Alabama gubernatorial candidate. As I should have recalled from a cursory glance at the state constitution, he would have to be an Alabama resident for at least seven years to be eligible, which would push his run back to 2014 at the earliest, unless he finds some lawyers who can prevail with some very creative arguments based on his property ownership here. My other remarks about a prospective Barkley candidacy still stand.
