Former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf told CNN's Wolf Blitzer that he thinks Texas Republican Governor Rick Perry will run for President of the United States.


The two men met in Austin last week to discuss the deteriorating relationship between the U.S. and Pakistan.

"You came away from that meeting thinking he's going to run?" Blitzer asked.

"Yes," he replied.

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and former Bush aide Karl Rove also expect him to run for the Republican nomination.
