Governor of California? Whitman's in

She'll announce on her website today.

Whitman, a moderate, who could fund her own campaign, is considered potentially a strong candidate. But she has rivals. Another anticipated GOP gubernatorial candidate, Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner, is also a billionaire from Silicon Valley. But Whitman, like Poizner, could face a difficult Republican primary against a conservative candidate, such as Congressman Tom McClintock.

So who does Mitt Romney endorse? The strong conservative with political experience and no chance of winning (McClintock) or the neophyte moderate who's actually got a shot (Whitman)?

Once again, which Mitt will emerge? Pragmatic Mitt or Pugnacious Romney?
