Retired basketball star and TNT sportscaster Charles Barkley still wants to run for Governor of Alabama.  He first announced his political intentions in February of 2008, and spoke again to reporters at the Democratic National Convention this week.

Barkley, who was born and raised in Alabama, cannot run until 2014 because he has to have lived in the state for seven years to be eligible.  He has homes in Arizona and Pennsylvannia (he played for both the Phoenix Suns and the Philadephia 76ers), but did not own a home in Alabama until last year.
