Republican Governors Head South
By Ben Pershing
Much of the political press heads south today to Miami and its 82-degree forecast -- being a reporter can be tough sometimes -- for the Republican Governors Association meetings and, more importantly, an assemblage of early contenders for 2012.
Included on the agenda: Sarah Palin (if she's done giving interviews), plus Tim Pawlenty, Bobby Jindal, Haley Barbour and, most likely, some governor you've barely heard of who plans to "pull a Huckabee" and spring onto the national scene in four years' time. Also brewing for the minority, an escalating battle to run the Republican National Committee. Over the past 48 hours we've heard the names Newt Gingrich (really?), Michael Steele and John Sununu, as well as Fred Thompson (really??) and the expected cast of state party leaders.
The Obama transition team, meanwhile, unveiled new rules yesterday on hiring lobbyists that are different than any previous administration's. But is this a change you can believe in?
