Starting Lineup: Obama's Moment?

The Starting Five 1. Is Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R), who has adamantly denied he'll run for president, polling outside Texas? 2. Dick Cheney, who is considering a heart transplant, says Pres. Obama will be a one term president. 3. Indiana Sen. Richard Lugar (R) - likely to face a primary challenge in 2012 - continues to alienate his base, this time on gun control, saying Congress needs to reinstate the assault weapons ban. 4. New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez (D) appears to be in good shape going into his re-election bid but is still well below the 50 percent mark against potential challengers. 5. Massachusetts Democrats have their first challenger to Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.): 1994 lieutenant governor candidate Bob Massie.
