    Tim Pawlenty to form presidential exploratory committee

    Former Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty will announce the formation of a presidential exploratory committee this afternoon, according to two aides briefed on the decision.

    The announcement will be aired live on Facebook at 3 pm, making Pawlenty the first ever candidate to begin the formal process of running for president via the ubiquitous social network. He is expected to officially enter the race later this spring.

    Well, here are the first signs of someone officially entering....It ain't much, but it is a start.

    Anyone would be better than what we have now.

    You posted that anybody was better than who we have now. I was curious to see if you really meant that.

    When Chris Christie and Bobby Jindal get in the race...call me.

    BTW...anyone see that Palin is meeting with leaders in Israel? She must be pretty serious about running if she's traveling all over the globe to meet with people so she can counter the "no international experience" argument.

    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    You're just being silly, unless you are saying that Pawlenty is akin to a serial killer....

    So saying Pawlenty being akin to being a serial killer isn't silly?

    Why hasn't the main media brought this up before?

    Yeah, I worded that wrong....I'll be clear.....Are you saying that Pawlenty is akin to a serial killer running?

    He's not saying that at all. You said "Anyone would be better". Anyone includes serial killers, so he wondered if you really meant "anyone".
    Give a man a fish, or he will destroy the only existing vial of antidote.
