As the field of candidates vying for the Republican nomination for president continues to churn and roil, is Texas Gov. Rick Perry's eventual victory impossible, implausible or inevitable?
My question is vaguely facetious. Perry's poll numbers in Iowa are low, and I suspect that hardly anyone gives him a chance of winning in that state's impending caucuses, or of even doing well. Perhaps his campaign has been permanently undone by weak debate performances and a series of flubs, like forgetting, for example, that the voting age was lowered to 18 many years ago.
