But Wait, There May Still Be More New Presidential Candidates!

But Wait, There May Still Be More New Presidential Candidates!


Think you’ve finally gotten a handle on all of the GOP candidates running for president?

But wait, they’re may be more.

Sarah Palin has already restarted the rumors by releasing her “Iowa video” Friday, but now more news is swirling.  Republican kingpin Karl Rove seems to believe she’s going to declare, too, and he may not just be saying it to try and spook Rick Perry.

And Palin isn’t the only candidate to come in and out of the picture.  Now that Minnesotan Tim Pawlenty has dropped out of the race, his workers have to go somewhere — and a rumor is swirling that the “somewhere” is to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.  Yes, it’s time for “Is Christie running?” headlines to hit the media again.

Conservative columnist Bill Kristol is saying there’s still a 50/50 chance that Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan will launch his own run for the office, something that Rove is also agreeing with. And on top of all of that, New York Governor George Pataki is considering floating a trial balloon on his own campaign, too.

One person who doesn’t seem to come in and out of the running?  Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels.  He seems just fine with his decision to stay out for 2012.

Who will really launch?  We’ll see in the next few weeks.

Scott K. Are you the Scott Keller running for president? Can't tell if you are or aren't when you talk about yourself in the third party.

i see people advocating for scott keller but his profile is bare?

As long as the votes for a loosing candidate in each state is discarded, a third candidate has to be very popular to have any chance at all. This is why you have two parties and no real choice.

This system was necessary, when votes where collected on horseback, but now you have computers and the internet to handle all the data, so there is no need for this ancient system no more.

It's over a year before the Presidental election. Why does anyone waste time on talking about who would be the best candidate at this point? WHO CARES? I'm with Jan N. Wake me up next summer, because what's the point of discussing people acting much like they always have so far before we vote?

The Scott Keller campaign for President in 2012 is a viable, creative effort that brings real solutions to problems. If you refuse to even consider other candidates, then you have already conceded to "them".

Yes Diane, we DO need to get our financial affairs in order, one step is to bring back the taxes for the wealthy that Dubbya took away, even the richest man in America states that.
