I suspect the Republicans have found their man.
A crowded field all of a sudden doesn't look so crowded, as Texas Gov. Rick Perry formally enters the race.
Say what you will about Perry's liabilities, but it looks to me that he wins the GOP nomination and faces Barack Obama in 2012.

You don't mess with Texas, and I think the GOP hopefuls will find that out rather quickly.
I figured Mitt Romney would be the nominee, until now. And it should be an interesting Perry-Obama campaign when it gets started.
