Trump decides to remain in the private sector.

"I maintain the strong conviction that if I were to run, I would be able to win the primary and ultimately, the general election," Trump said in a statement on Monday. "I have spent the past several months unofficially campaigning and recognize that running for public office cannot be done half heartedly. Ultimately, however, business is my greatest passion and I am not ready to leave the private sector."

Huckabee is out, now Trump.

It has been suggested that GOP candidates are waiting to see if Palin will run before making a decision.

Why anyone would want the job is beyond me.

Amen on Trump being out. I don't think he was ever a serious candidate, but what do I know?

Now I'm reading about the psycho from Minnesota thinking about it. For those that don't know about this lovely state, run for your lives. Bachman 's crazy.

I was thrilled to hear this. Regardless of the party in charge, we should always hope for a smart leader who puts the nation first, two traits, I don't think the man had.

I wouldn't count the GOP out, Trump was never actually going to win, I would have had similar doubts about Huckabee and Palin. If a Republican is going to win, I strongly doubt it will be a Tea Party-ish member, especially if the government can get the budget squared away to a point everyone can kind of stomach. Right now I'd guess Romney as the Republican candidate.

Looks like Newt is already feeling the heat. Can't trust him as far as I can throw him.

Wish I was born here. I'd give it a crack, too.

Everyone knows they don't actually check birth certificates before people run, I propose the SmoothZ/iDRM350 ticket.

I've got people I know from work who would vote for me. The Z club here has made me the unofficial Prez, so I'm sure they'll support me.
