The 2012 Candidates: Obama's In

Well, it was bound to happen at some point.

Add President Obama to the list of candidates vying for the White House in 2012. And though he may have to do it again, Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) once again reaffirmed his plans not to seek the Republican nomination the week before last. Obama is now officially in -- the only Democrat -- while no Republicans have officially jumped beyond the exploratory committee level.
