I'm also amazed by the large number of candidates (or potential candidates). I'm not sure how many will eventually really enter the race, at least w/ any genuine prospects. I don't think Maldonado, Ortiz, or San Martin have much hope. And I think many of the others will drop out or join forces eventually. But it's still a long way to December!

Yes, it's a long way to December. I am expecting more excitement.
