33. This is way earlier than anyone announced - even as recently as 2004
With a whole year in the brutal zoo that is the current Presidential race, it is possible that after the first few debates and the campaigning where eveything that can be taken out of context will, the three front runners could end up battle scarred and with gaping liabilities. This is an awful process for picking the nominee.

It may well be that one of the second tier candidates will then emerge - and appear fresh compared to the candidate who already was in the spotlight for six months. No one knows what will happen. Gore might enter or not. Many of us could point out liabilities of each - the question is how they counter them and gain enough support. Imagine the top three do open wounds - poor idea - but that is where it looks like we are going, Clark may jump in. Clark does not hold office. So, if he did opt to run, even in summer, he could put in a huge amount of time in the early primary states. He has nowhere as much money, but Kerry had less than half of what Dean did available for the Iowa and NH primaries.
