PEJ News Coverage Index: June 17 - 22, 2007, The Bloomberg Boomlet Drives 2008 Campaign Coverage
As coverage of the crowded and unsettled 2008 Presidential race has accelerated in recent months, one recurring story line has focused not on the 19 candidates already in the race—but on a few people still on the sidelines.

With surveys indicating that Republicans are less satisfied with their party's presidential hopefuls than Democrats, a good deal of this coverage has focused on former GOP House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Republican Senator Fred Thompson, with the latter expected to enter the race soon. On the Democratic side, there's been occasional coverage speculating on a possible bid by former Vice President Al Gore.
