Well, this type of interview is unusual for Pawlenty. He's usually quite upbeat about most everything.

Pawlenty, like Norm Coleman, was a beneficiary of the Democrats' implosion following the death of Paul Wellstone.

Pawlenty's numbers have stabilized a great deal from the disastrous legislative special session earlier this year.

He will be able to raise a respectable amount of money for his re-election bid and commands the respect of most rank and file GOP'ers.

Anyone have any opinions, comments, etc. on this article?

I find it hard to believe that any politician would speak this negatively about his campaign or party.

I don't trust the Star & Sickle.

It looks to me like he's lowering expectations and seizing the mantle of the underdog.

Voters tend to like divided govt and right now Republicans are generally in control, nationally and to some degree in Minnesota. If they're in a foul mood come '06 they're gonna want turnover. Pawlenty wants to be seen as David still battling the old hidebound Democrat establishment Goliath.

Conservatives here are livid at Pawlenty. Just like the President he sold out on some issues to get along with the Liberal's. We all know it does not work. I for one want someone to run aginst him in the primaries. He himself split the party in Mn.

Is it Pawlenty or the GOP that's in trouble?
