Nine months from now we should know who is running and who isn't. I also think that in 9 months some of the candidates may even have washed out, or at least be stagnating at 1% or less.
My predictions are:
Huckabee will have a M-F slot at Fox. Probably Glenn Beck's old slot.
Palin will have decided not to run.
Gingrich will be below 8%.
Trump will be winning the tea party/personality vote and Bachmann will have either washed out or be hovering around 1%.
Pawlenty will have received Huck's endorsement and will be fighting Romney for first place. Further he will have the socon vote mostly sewed up.
Daniels will be in third (and will be my candidate).
Barbour will still be in, but going no where.
Paul and Johnson will be in, but nobody outside of their crazy libertarian following will care.
Hillary will have quit her job as Secretary of State and will be primarying Obama.
Obama's surrogates will be in secret negotiations with Giffords to have her replace Biden as VP on the 2012 ticket.
Matt "MWS" will be a front page poster here at Rigthspeak.
Ellie will have been outed as Arianna Huffington.
