Default Your Next Republican Preznit!

Because it's never too early to start horserace coverage, amirite? So we will have a straw poll of the highly influential Bhtv commentariat, and also use this thread for relevant news and gossip.

Sadly, vBulletin only allows a maximum of ten options in their polls, so I picked the nine that seemed to be getting the most buzz that I've seen. Following is a more extensive list of those mentioned (here, here, and/or here) as candidates to be the 2012 GOP nominee. A leading asterisk means that person was in this thread's poll; a trailing -FFC means that person is among those invited by the Faith and Freedom Coalition to participate in a forum in Iowa on 7 March 2011.

Michele Bachmann
* Haley Barbour -FFC
