(CNN) – To those keeping a list of when potential presidential candidates are going to announce their intentions, pencil South Dakota Sen. John Thune in at the end of February.
Thune, who rivals Mitt Romney in the I-look-like-a-president category, told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt Wednesday he will decide by the end of February.
"I've told people I don’t have a definite timeline or deadline out there, but it strikes me, at least, for somebody like myself who’s not known, and would have to work a lot harder at getting known,” said Thune.
Several recent polls show Thune among the bottom of the presidential pack, a reflection of the South Dakota senator’s little name recognition beyond his home state.
So when can we begin to see the ball rolling on Republican primary campaigns?
Here’s CNN’s round up of those who have given hints:
Mike Pence: End of January
Mitch Daniels: “Before May”
Mitt Romney: “We’re looking at different dates”
Mike Huckabee: No decision until the summer
Sarah Palin: Not ready to make an announcement
Newt Gingrich: Late February
Tim Pawlenty: In the coming months
Rudy Giuliani: “Evaluate… as the year goes along”
Haley Barbour: “Next few weeks or months”
Yeah, godd reason to vote for someone....they look presidential. Sheeeesh.
You may look presidential, but you and your party are dumb as a doorknob. You've got "Fascist" written across your forehead Thug, I mean Thune.
Thune is best suited to run against Obama. Not to say I'll be voting for him, but SOMEONE will have to run. Thune - should he decide to run - will cause the least damage to the Republican Party. He can't win, though. None of them can.
Run for President !!!!! Why not, -- everyone else is doing it.
And just think: I thought I would have NOTHING to laugh about today. It gets funnier as the day goes on.
Today is Thursday, Jan. 27, 2011 and the republicans STILL haven't found an answer for/to our president.
Thune would be a GREAT president
So the whole Republican party's running for president. That should work.
What has any of these idiots done for our country lately. They use the 3 CCC's, complain, campaign and collect money and that sums up exactly what they do for themselves and I like many Americans are sick of all of them.
Most people in this country are upset about religion being forced on us by politicians. What do you think would happen if Thune got in. He is the most practicing Evangleican religious person in this country. Don't tell me he wouldn't rant and rave and make religion more of a part of government. Those people are very intelligent when it comes to forcing their views on people.
I encourage all of the above to run and come to Iowa! And bring your checkbooks!~

Anyone but failin palin please
And the devils comes out in troves...
Quite a list. Don't forget Bachman, Angle, Goofy, and Mickey. Maybe if they all ran together, they could beat Pres Obama. Maybe not.
I don't think you look like President but you want to be President. So, I think you going to get knock out by Second round.
