Hastert jumps on the Romney train...

I was surprised to learn during the State of the Union preview that the former-Speaker of the House J. Dennis Hastert today signed on to Mitt Romney's presidential campaign. Apparently the former-Massachusetts governor has been courting Congressmen aggressively as he prepares to take on several formidable challengers in the Republican primaries beginning roughly one year from today. Though Hastert no longer wields the same power and influence that he once possessed as the most powerful legislator in the nation, he will always be one of, if not the most respected members of the Republican Party. I would not be surprised to see many other Republicans also join the Romney camp, which should help boost the Governor's campaign as it begins its long up hill battle against front-runners Rudi Giuliani and John McCain.
