He doesn't have Sarah Palin's pizzazz or Mitt Romney's money. But the governor of Minnesota may be a shrewd Republican bet in 2012. By Howard Fineman | NEWSWEEK http://www.newsweek.com/id/227748/page/1
I like Tim Pawlenty. He is smart and very funny in a dry Minnesota way. His wife I believe is a judge. I think they met in law school. I personally wanted McCain to pick him as his VP. Now he is my top pick for the next President. But know one really knows him. I’m not sure if he has much of a chance.
