Stephen Colbert Ponders Presidential Bid

Comedian Stephen Colbert is considering jumping in the race for the Republican nomination – or so he joked on his program Wednesday.  He emphasized his qualification as not being Mitt Romney, and promised his fans a big announcement on Thursday.

This comes on the heels of a recent PPP poll which showed Colbert beating Jon Huntsman in a hypothetical South Carolina race.  The Colbert Report host received 5% of the vote, versus 4% for the former Utah Governor.
