According to George Will:
This is the most open scramble on the Republican side since 1940 when Wendell Willkie came out of the woodwork [actually, was handpicked by the Establishment to lose to FDR] and swept the field. I think — people are complaining this is not off to a brisk start. I think that’s wrong. I think we know with reasonable certainty that standing up there on the West front of the Capitol on Jan. 20, 2013, will be one of three people: Obama, Pawlenty, or Daniels. I think that’s it.
