2012 GOP Presidential Field: The Frontrunners

CBSNews.com has put together a slideshow of the twelve people we see as the most likely Republican presidential candidates in the 2012 race - and we'd be thrilled if you'd check it out. They're in alphabetical order - we're not picking a frontrunner this far out - and the list includes seemingly out-of-left-field names like Jeb Bush (a surprisingly strong candidate in light of his Florida power base), careful establishment candidates like Mitt Romney, and, of course, everyone's favorite former Alaska governor.

Click below to check out our gallery of the top GOP contenders - and read about their strengths and weaknesses should they enter the race to face off against President Obama in his reelection campaign.
