Pawlenty Officially Enters the Race

We all knew this announcement was coming:

Unlike many other candidates already in/out of the GOP hunt, Tim Pawlenty is not flashy, charismatic or a well-known commodity outside the party.  However, he’s articulate, has administrative experience, pretty conservative, and aside from a passing flirtation with cap-and-trade back in the day, has very little baggage that he couldn’t easily defend.  Also, he’s a option for many would-be Mitch Daniels voters as well as a few Huckaberries.

Since this announcement had been expected for months, for good or bad nothing changes in the GOP dynamic as a result.
