The summary:  Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney announces that he’s forming an exploratory committee for the 2012 presidential election – the traditional first step to make a run at the White House.

The reaction:  No surprise here.  Romney has long been considered one of the Republicans who can challenge Barack Obama in 2012.  He’s just making it official today.

Romney would have a much different field than he faced in 2008.  He’ll likely face holdovers like Mike Huckabee but will also could face newcomers like Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin and Donald Trump.
