The “brain trust” — and I obviously use that term very loosely — that compiles the Power Rankings is hotly debating the next edition of the 2012 rankings. Here’s how they stacked up last time:

Sarah Palin
Mitt Romney
Mike Huckabee
Mark Sanford
Tim Pawlenty

(others receiving votes)
Rudy Giuliani, Bobby Jindal, John Thune

How would you rank them and why?
