Guest lineups for the Sunday TV news shows:
For those tired of front-runners picked by the liberal media and the ruling class, we present the 2012 Iowa caucuses. With recent announcements by Chris Christie and Sarah Palin that they're not running, the field is set for the first-in-the-nation Republican presidential contest. However, with no presumptive favorite, plus an ornery and fickle electorate, the field is as fluid as is the date the Iowa caucuses actually will be held.
They're writing books. They're making speeches. They're fawning over the big dogs.
Herman Cain is becoming a serious contender on the national stage. Winning the Conservative Political Action Conference straw poll in Orlando catapults him to the front of the pack. Through feisty debate performances and a compelling personal narrative, the businessman no one in Washington had heard of a short time ago has made himself into a real factor in the Republican primaries. Once thought to be running for a Cabinet seat, Mr. Cain is now talked about as an asset as a running mate on the national ticket, if not as the actual standard-bearer.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, fresh from picking up former rival Tim Pawlenty's endorsement, criticized the Obama administration's links to organized labor, arguing that a National Labor Relations Board's complaint against Boeing is White House payback to unions.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Mitt Romney picked up Monday night where they left off in their last debate encounter, with the two GOP heavyweights engaging in a testy exchange over Social Security.
With three more presidential debates scheduled and a quarterly fundraising report due, the next five weeks loom as do-or-die time for some of the lesser GOP candidates trying to make enough of an impression to stay in the race.
Despite a new rival's surge, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is campaigning as though he's still the GOP presidential front-runner, focusing his criticisms on President Obama, taking few risks and keeping most proposals vague enough to leave ample maneuvering room.
