There’s a long list of Republicans who are flirting with the idea of running for the party’s presidential nomination since many see a good possibility of beating President Barack Obama, the Christian Science Monitor reported Wednesday.

obama, vulnerable, 2012"People perceive vulnerability in President Obama," said Darrell West, a Brookings Institution’s political analyst. "We have high unemployment, we have 2-1/2 wars, and there's a lot of contentiousness surrounding health care. So nobody's afraid to take on a sitting president."

The field of candidates could be a dozen or so by the time the Iowa caucuses roll around next year. However, the candidate field will filter down to three likely serious contenders for the 2012 Republican presidential nod: former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour.

All three have been organizing and building their campaign staff, raising money, traveling to early primary states and building goodwill among local politicians and party activists. Other candidates are either far behind or have major political liabilities to overcome.
