U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint’s keynote speech next month to an Iowa forum for Republican presidential candidates has fueled hopes among some evangelicals and conservative activists that the South Carolinian will launch a White House run.

DeMint, overwhelmingly elected to his second Senate term in November, will deliver the evening banquet address to a dozen GOP presidential hopefuls — and hundreds of party stalwarts — March 26 at a Des Moines hotel, scarcely 10 months before Iowa’s leadoff presidential House caucuses.

Scarcely! Looks like this presidential election will be another Jim DeMint-Alvin Greene showdown. That’s a lot like the relationship between Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas. So expect Greene to win this time. [The State]
