Former Republican Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty told CNNs Piers Morgan Tuesday hes in the race.
Im running for president, Pawlenty said in an interview set to air Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET on Piers Morgan Tonight. Im not putting my hat in the ring rhetorically or ultimately for vice president. Im focused on running for president.
Pawlenty announced the formation of a presidential exploratory committee last month.

How about Clay Henry III. Beer drinking goat and longtime mayor of Lajitas, Texas?
Look it up. He’s even got more executive experience than Barry. =)
His commercials make him seem more exciting than he really is. And that will be a problem.
The Team SHOULD BE: Palin/West.
If not.......Trump is sounding really good lately.......(pro-Life, too).......
1. I, nor virtually every other natural born US citizen knows virtually nothing about him.
2. He drinks beer.
3. He's from the south.
4. His name infers he's at least a natural born US citizen (Clay=terra firma=land=posession=US...and Henry=steel drivin' man)!
4. He's from a mexican sounding town, so he'll get the illegal alien and mexican and spanish vote.
5. He loves other animals (why wouldn't he?).
6. He's kept his town of Lajita together through thick and thin so he believes in union...so he gets the Union vote.
7. He never changes his statements. They're the same every time (bleat, bleat, bleat!)
And with the campaign slogan, "Tip yer canoe and Clay Henry III also!", how can he lose??
He's got my vote!!
I missed this yesterday. I think this makes him the first official GOP candidate for president. I don't think any of the others have officially declared like this yet (I could be wrong), they're just claiming they're considering running........like Pat Paulsen......
Oops, he’s recanted, he’s still “exploring”. At least according to this Polutico article: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2704003/posts
Pawpaw needs to give it up. Even 'exploring' is a waste of someone's time and money. Not to mention Jim Rob's bandwidth.
With TPaw, you get them both in spades.
Yeah...someone safe. Someone who isn't controversial. Someone who will graciously lose to the Democrat.
Everyone has their flaws, some have fewer (Reagan, Washington) and some have more (Carter, Obama).
After 7 years of this Obama charisma thing, charisma just is not what it is cracked up to be. I was born in Canada under the Trudeaumania thing, a reaction to which may explain my preference for boring people like Tim Pawlenty. Other than being the anti-Obama on the charisma scale, what else you don’t like about Pawlenty?
I want “not-Obama”. Obama = basketball, Pawlenty = hockey. Great!!
Chris Christie is a social liberal. He’s a fiscal hero, but the more that conservatives look at Christie, the less enticing he will be to us as a Presidential candidate. And as for foreign affairs, President Christie would be what everyone else in the world hates most about Americans, kind of like Hitler + Kruschev = Christie kind of thing. The fact is Christie does the most for America by being an exemplary bad-ass GOP governor of a blue state.
Also, I don’t want to risk supporting folks for executive office who have never run anything besides their own campaigns (like Obama) - that has turned out horribly. So that rules out Ryan, Rubio, etc. I love Ryan, Rubio and many of our recent congress critters, but not yet... though come to think of it Rubio might make an outstanding VP candidate, he would add some charisma that Pawlenty lacks.
President Tim Pawlenty and Vice President Marco Rubio - I think that would be a really good combo.
