No big surprise that former Governor Mitt Romney (R-MA) has announced forming a presidential exploratory committee.  Some (myself included) would say he never stopped running since 2008.  At least we know we’ll have one candidate in the race with really great hair.

Here is his video announcement below:

Announcing in New Hampshire and his lack of appearences in Iowa make me believe he will pretty much avoid the First in the Nation Caucus state.

That very well may be a good strategy at least for his pocketbook, if not for winning the nomination.

Update: Somehow I think that Romney would prefer not to get thank you cards from Iowa Democrats for RomneyCare.  I don’t know, just a hunch.  Just one example of why winning the Republican nomination will be extremely difficult for him.
