Way too early for this

In an interesting, but honestly not terribly surprising development, Roy Barnes leads ridiculously early polling in a hypothetical head-to-head matchup with Karen Handel for the governor's race in 2010.

Barnes was a victim of a Republican wave in 2002, and he took hits for his education reform proposals and from the flaggers. Eight years later, however, would be a different story, particularly given the budget fiasco and economic hardships of the past few years. He'd be a very, very strong candidate.

I'm not sold that Handel runs, though. I think it's either Casey Cagle or John Oxendine for the Republicans.
