Current Texas Governor Rick Perry will, in all likelihood, be President of the United States in January of 2013. 
Having already said that on Fox News and the nationally syndicated Mancow Radio Experience, I guess it's time for me to now put into print what I see forming in front of me. 
So I did.
I did this in December 2006 too. I was the first pundit to predict that Barack Obama would be President, and I said that would be especially true if John McCain were his opponent. The story of how my prediction turned into our nation's current nightmare is documented in my new best selling book, "No He Can't: How Barack Obama is Dismantling Hope and Change."
For me the field of 2012 felt odd and disjointed as Governors Huckabee and Palin were long in making their minds up. Even now we still don't know the mind of the former Alaskan governor. But polling data was clear from February 2010 to April 2011 that if President Obama had been forced to face Gov. Huckabee he would lose.
The rest of the current field is interesting, but essentially so much alike, in so many ways, there are contrasts, but at times, hard to see.
Enter the candidate who has not even announced yet, the three term Governor from Texas, Rick Perry.
As I did in my 2006 piece, which was read by Rush Limbaugh the day after publication, let me give you five reasons Governor Perry would win.
