Early Look at the Possible Republican Presidential Candidates

Comment: 1st article: George Will doesn't think much of Huck or Newt; 2nd: NYTimes graphic early possible GOP Candidates. Later ... my early view.

George Will: Mike Huckabee, Newt Gingrich and the spotlight-chasing candidates of 2012


There are at most five plausible Republican presidents on the horizon - Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, former Utah governor and departing ambassador to China Jon Huntsman, former Massachusetts governor Romney and former Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty.

So the Republican winnowing process is far advanced. But the nominee may emerge much diminished by involvement in a process cluttered with careless, delusional, egomaniacal, spotlight-chasing candidates [editor: Huck and Newt] to whom the sensible American majority would never entrust a lemonade stand, much less nuclear weapons.

NYTimes: Possible Republican Presidential Candidates

Final comment: I see Romney as the early front runner. I see Pawlenty as a good VP running mate. I'm impressed with Daniels. Re Newt: I see him as an important Republican theoretician ... not a viable candidate.
