If Sarah Palin is seriously considering a run for president in 2012, the latest poll on her standing among Republican candidates contains the same kind of bad news that could be found in earlier surveys.
Rand Paul isn't talking about White House ambitions at this point, but his father, Rep. Ron Paul, says there's a 50-50 chance that he will run for president again in 2012.
