Or not. From today's news:
"Organizers worried that the May 2 debate, which was announced shortly after the midterm elections last November, would not attract candidates who will eventually get into the race but are delaying announcements for legal and political reasons. Only one top-tier candidate, Tim Pawlenty, has officially created an exploratory committee." Web Link

Are they THAT afraid of Obama? Is he unbeatable? Mitt? Michelle? Newt? Sarah?
