Today, Tim Pawlenty announced his candidacy for President.

In connection with the announcement, Pawlenty released this video. It is very effective, I think:
As regular readers know, I am a fan of Governor Pawlenty. He did a tremendous job as Governor of Minnesota. Imagine Chris Christie for eight years instead of one, fighting against bitterly hostile Democratic majorities in the legislature–not just fighting, but winning–and you have Tim Pawlenty. Some question whether he can excite the Republican base. I think he can, actually, but beyond that, anyone who isn’t excited about getting rid of the Obama administration by 2012 was never part of the base to begin with.
