Tracking the GOP race to 2012

Bobby Jindal is giving $10,000 donated to him by an accused fraudster to a victims' compensation fund; a source tells the New York Daily News that Rudy Giuliani wants to run for Senate--as a possible stepping stone to a 2012 bid; Sara Palin drew more than 750 people to her book-signing event in Noblesville, IN; the Army will keep media out of a Palin book-signing event at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, fearing the event will turn into an anti-Obama protest; Palin got a 70 percent favorablity rating *among Republicans in a Fox/Opinion Dynamics poll, higher than the other GOP hopefuls included; and Mike Huckabee said he thinks some GOP attacks on President Obama--over more trivial matters--are "deplorable" and "shameful."
