    I think the GOP has a problem right now, The front runner has a "Health Care" problem. Romney seems pretty week. Ron Paul is interesting, but his policies are so far out of the main stream, I don't see him even getting to double digits. Gingrich may as well forget it with his morality problems. Huckabee may not even run. I heard that W and some of the GOP establishment are backing Mitch Daniels, but he hasn't announced and some feel that he won't. Who will be the GOP nominee?

    Isn't this a bit early? WHY the rush? Are you trying to zero-in on which candidate to focus on destroying first?

    Ron Paul is the only one I would not place in the Tweedle Dee/Tweedle Dum category.

    This is getting very bizarre. What's going on with the GOP? A new version of "Don't ask...Don't tell?"

    Common wisdom in the last three presidential elections was that it takes at least two years to run for president.

    This is hard to figure out. Either these guys are misunderestimating Obama and feel all they have to do is show up last minute OR they feel they really have no chance and don't want to waste the money it will take to do respectably.

    I know one thing that might have affected the very recent decisions not to jump in is the killing of Bin Ladin. It gave Obama a huge bounce in the polls and probably added another month to the waiting game before the luster wears off The Prez. The way it is now there might not be a serious GOP debate on a top network for a month or more. Oh wait..there was a GOP debate of sorts... What happened? Crickets.... That's what happened.. NO NEWS COVERAGE!!

    "T" thinks it is too early? By what standard? Last time we were already 6 months into the race.

    My sense is that these morons will claim it is too early until it is really TOO LATE!!!:eek:

    Of the ones you mentioned, I would think Pawlenty or Daniels, as of this post. There is much time for change to happen as candidates reveal their vision of America and how we are going to begin getting there. Still way too soon to tell.

    I am in Herman Cain's corner. (But I won't VOTE in this poll). Too early by a stretch...
