Place Your Bets - 2012 GOP Candidates

Charles Krauthammer is my favorite political analyst and columnist currently. In his column today, he is giving odds for the Republican nominees in 2012. Here is a summary of the likely candidates:
  1. Mitt Romney: 5-1

  2. Tim Pawlenty: 5-1

  3. Mitch Daniels: 6-1

  4. Haley Barbour: 7-1

  5. Newt Gingrich: 12-1

  6. Michelle Bachmann: 20-1

  7. Donald Trump: Lions have a better chance at winning the Super Bowl
He mentions but doesn't give odds for those he believes aren't running - Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee.

He does discuss the very deep 2016 bench. They are Paul Ryan, Chris Christie, Marco Rubio, and Nikki Haley. Personally, I would add Allen West and Bob McDonnell to his list.

So based on this list of Krauthammer's odds and my previous post of electoral college strategy, upon whom are you willing to place your bet?
